    I have received two pics of He-177 from a friend.
    A relative of him was Crewmember in this bird. Unfortunately i have no Unit Informations, but he told he have some Field post letters. So i maybe can discover the unit if i see the field post number on the envelopes. And maybe he will find more pictures :D:D

    Thanks for all your comments!
    I´m sharing with pleasure.. The best picture is nothing worth if it is covered in a drawer .... That´s my opinion :D

    They really were beautiful bombers. It's the first time I have ever seen more then one flying in a pic before.

    Great pics! If it is possible to lighten that first one so we can see the code we can find out which unit. Nice shots!

    I also tried out here everything to find a code on the plane.. no chance...
    There is a writing on the backside, but this is heavy "overpainted".. I tried to make carefully the writing visible, but all you can read (with really good will) is "gelbe" So maybe the stand something like "gelbe J". I don´t want to destroy the picture by doing more on it....
    What me confuse is that no Werknr is painted on the tai on the second picture... Maybe in two weeks i will receive the field post letters i wrote about. With luck i can then "discover" the unit...
