    Hi all.

    I'm just interested to find out what the staffel number-code colours were for III./JG3 during 1944 while they were using BF109G-6s? I saw a photo of a 109g-6 with white Reichs defence band and vertical black bar, but the number code was obscured, so i'm not sure what a typical III./JG3 aircraft would look like?

    Thanks!

    it changed by August 44 when a 4th staffel was added

    very confusing but here goes. 7th staffel is white

    8th staffel is black later turning to red

    9th staffel is yellow

    ______________________________________________________

    note III. gruppe flew the G-6 through September 1944's end ...........

    9th : white

    10th : black

    11th : yellow

    12th : blue

    understand due to looses in pilots/ aircraft that many pilots would fly 109G and K's from other staffeln.

    have fun !

    Thanks Erich!

    The photo I have is of a G-6 at Leipheim in March 1944...from III./JG3. Anybody have any photos of Aircraf of this gruppe perhaps?
