    Here my first presumption :

    It could be an aircraft of Jagdgeschwader JG 26, because a Fw 190 with a nearby Werknummer was lost in the same region and same time frame.

    JG 26 Casualty on 17.08.1944 :

    Leutnant Hans Rösen - 6./JG 26 - WNr.: 170976 - Black 1 - near Chartres-Dreux - Reason : Light Flak

    170972 was an A-8 built at Focke Wulf Cottbus around May-June 1944.
