    Hi Erich,my dad did fly for the 126. infanteriedivision (Paul Laux).In 1940 he did fly in the operation Niwi. In '41 he was in the area of Demjansk and had sometimes to fly for generalfieldmarshal Ernst Busch.In this area he was until the end of war.

    Interesting. The Fiesler Storch is really an interesting airplane. There are some good sites on the web about the Storch and I would think Erich probably knows of a good book or two about it. If you are looking for some pictures of one, I have a few on my website at: Van Gilder Aviation Photography, Fiesler Storch

    Question about the Black Forrest. Is it connected or in any way part of the Hurtegen Forrest? Are they two separate forest, many miles apart?

    Sorry to jump your thread like this but it's Black Forrest related.

    grtanni :

    can you cut and paste the article(s) from your father memories to this web-site for us ? the Landser small publication(s) may be hard to find for us here in the US and elsewhere .........

    Also, is it in German? Would probably be beyond the ability of the English speakers on the board and given the length, would be a bear to translate.

    think about this granni, it is YOUR papa's story not Landser's or any other. copy and insert different wording that is not breaking any copyright law(s)

    At first a never ending story:
    My dad studied in vienna.At the beginning of the ww2 he became the pilotlicence and flew the storch.After the war in 1965 he went to Baden-Baden
    to an airshow.There was a storch.The owner invited him to fly the storch,so he did the first and the last time after the war!(The two children -my sister and me)Now listen! This storch is now in a museum in Vienna. So .
