In my castle....
....an interesting build!

09/11/42
Obgfr. Gustav Luther, 4./JG 5.
Bf 109 E-7, W. Nr. 4054, White 5.
Combat, Aninkavaara, NE d' Alakurtti.
Crashed at Maaninkavaara, Finland.
The pilot apparently had gotten lost and when running out of fuel decided to bail out. He ended up landing in a tree and for some reason couldnt free himself but died there. The body was found only after the war.
Was later buried, probably German soldiers cemetary at Norvajärvi near Rovaniemi.
Info from Harri Honkanen.
