    Enlarged pics... The layout of the camo at the engine cowling is the same. Flaps are open.

    Must be the same aircraft, also notice that the port-side cowling is also partially unfastened in both photos.

    Looks to be the same. I've been trying to discern the WNr. Any more info?

    EDIT: This aircraft, but not the above pictures of it, appears in Crandall's D-9 volume 1 on pages 221, 222, and 223. Captions state the plane to be from JG6, likely I Gruppe surrendered to the Americans at Plauen. Pretty sure its a 500 series WNr.

    The enlarged part of the pic shows the werk nummer looking like 534610 or 534619. Generally 53?61?.

    If the first number of the werknummer is 5 then the next two must be 00.

    The position and apparent font as well as what we can see of the camouflage and markings are also consistent with a Mimetall Factory built D-9 from early 1945. The rise in the camouflage demarcation over the fuselage balkenkreuz is typical for example.

    My best guesses are 500610 or 500618.

    Cheers

    Steve

    Good shots! Thanks for sharing.

    Certainly looks the same aircraft to me.

    With Steve, except 500618 was a JG 26 rig with the black and white RV band.

    There's a discussion going on about the first set of pics at TOCH and the betting money is on 500610. Apparently that number was speculated by the JaPo boys.

    Focke Wulf Fw190D-9 W.Nr. 500570 'Blue 12'
    The 'Blue 12' belonged to the II. / JG 6 and was handed over to US troops in Fürth, after the German pilot landed the aircraft on the airfield occupied Fürth. The photo was taken by an American soldier and was developed shortly before or shortly after the war.
