    I have only found a picture, no Wr number and no pilot name. I do know it belonged to JG5 and has a bow with a bomb for the arrow on a blue background. I also know that it was painted in RLM 74/75/76. This plane was located in Petsamo, Finland in 1943. Any more info would be useful.

    I have been looking at the history of JG.5 but it is incomplete and there were a few Fws in the area at that time.

    Hi Ikerus,

    I did find some info at this site Luftwaffe Loss Register - Part 10 Fighters JG5

    If it's the same plane:
    WNr. 135 443
    Pilot Ltn. Fritz Sch├╝tze

    However it mentions the loss as being located around Norway: Cra/s off island Herdla, NW of Bergen

    Hope it helps.
