    Good evening (in UK) everyone!

    Does anyone know if a side view exists of Georg Peter Eder's Fw190A-8 in September1944.

    I am assuming it was a Fw190A-8 as he became Grupppenkommandeur of II./JG26 just before he transferred to Me262's.

    I have searched everywhere but can find nothing.

    Regards to all and thanks,

    weinace:p

    I'll have a look in the JG26 War Diaries and let you know. Can't remember seeing one there, but there's probably a shot somewhere. It'll either be an A7 or A8 from what I remember of the ORBAT at that time.

    Nope, not one in the War Diaries, but I'll keep looking.

    Good morning 'Airframes'!!

    Thank you very much for your help.

    It's surprising, reading about this pilot, there is so little 'visual record'.

    Regards,

    weinace:p

    Eder was in commmand of II/JG26 for a very short period before transferring to 262's so I think you will be hard pressed to find a picture.....will keep an eye open though!:D
