    could you please enlarge the 5 photo down ?

    appears to be Bf 110G-2 bomber destroyers either from ZG 1 or ZG 76 due to the wide fuselage band either white or yellow. long upper nose 2cm weapons.

    thanks for sharing

    Third one down is a Blohm und Voss Bv-138. One of THE best long range maritime aircraft used for U-Boat resupply and reconnaisance.

    No, the first picture is not a Yak! It is a MiG 3.

    The 4th picture shown typical He 111B.

    All the German ones were common Luftwaffe aircraft and easy to identify.

    Zuluecho no your last pic is of an earlier war e or f model Bf 110 and not one of the later 1943-44 G-2 bomber destroyers. you photo - last one shows the upper nose containing four MG 17's not the twin long rod 2cm weapons of the G-2 in this case.

    I almost forgot about this one:

    Sorry, but I think it is Yak-1 of first winter 1941/42 production with skis. Production of Yak-9 started on October 1942.

    Hi !!!
    Sorry, but in my opinion the pic doesn't show Yak-9 :( but Yak-1 probably.I have to check it with a book about Yak fighters.

    Ha,ha... Net sailor has been faster than me.I agree with him completly.It is interesting that the a/c wasn't probably equipped with radio receiver ( the lack of the radio aerial with its mast)

    I can exclude the F version, a small radiator under engine used on C, D and E variants is clearly visilible. i think C version is very probable.

    net is probably right as I took a stab at it, but it is an earlier variant. note the props being short and squared off compared to the much larger rounded spinners and the ID ring on the G-2 prop

    So this Bf 110 nose image is of a DB 601B-1, Ba or P equipped Bf 110 C/D/E but not of a DB 601F-equipped Bf 110 F ?
    Is it possible to ID the engine or the unit of these Bf belonged to ?

    ad 1.: yes!
    ad 2.: no!
    And it is more likely a "C", then a "D" or "E", IMO.

    There are two ways to idenitfy unit:
    1. An emblem of the unit (not visible on this picure :( )
    2. Code No. XX+XX (see aircraft fuselage on the background) - in the ZG units the first two letters idicate the Geschwader, another two (behind the balkenkreuz) are individual a/c desidnation within the unit. If you can read these letter, I'll be able to help (I've got the codes of all ZG unit :) ).

    I agree :D
