    JU 87's from a training unit.

    7./NJG 2 Ju 88G-1 captured in England as the crew really screwed up by making a landing at Woodbridge Essex on 13 July 44. SN-2 and Flensburg fell into RAF hands which nearly spelled the doom of the Luftw. Nf force. A very well known pic I have had it since the 1960's in my data files

    On the Henschel Hs 129B1 4. Staffel, Schlachtgeschwader 2. I quote from the book "Luftwaffe Squadrons 1939-45" 4./SchG2 was the second unit to be formed with the Hs129B-1. Established in Poland in September 1942, it had been transferred to North Africa by November. Color plate on page 70

    I found a color plate on the Ju88G-1 also! Again from the book"Luftwaffe Squadrons 1939-45 Pg.152. 7. Staffel, Nachtjagdgeschwader 2. "Based in Gilze-Rijen in JUly 1944, this aircraft became lost on the night of 12/13 of that month. Following a radio beacon, the crew landed in error at an RAF base in Suffolk, giving the British an unbelievable intelligence windfall."

    The info on Fw 190s I've found in some books.
    The first pic shows Fw 190A-5/U14 equipped with an air torpedo LTF 5b.Its armament was 2xMG 151/20E mounted in wings.This a/c TD+SI werk.nr.150873 was presented to Luftwaffe and Kriegsmarine personel in the base of the experimental torpedo equipment Gdynia-Babie Doły ( called in that time Gotenhafen-Hexengrund ) in August 1943.The a/c had the tail wheel modified to make much more space between a ground and the torpedo.No serial production.The result of the tests was Fw190 F8/R14.

    The second one - Fw 190 V18 werk nr.0040 CF+OY, it's a prototype of C version equipped with turbo-charger TK 9AC of the Hirth firm and 4 blade-prop.This a/c was built in 1942 as one of ten prototypes equipped with Daimler-Benz 603 engines plus the some different superchargers for the "Hohenjager 2" project.

    Thanks guys for the help , my friend has been collecting and buying aviation pictures for about 35years and has over 100000 slides alone but is not nor has ever been online . Although most of his collection deals with military aircraft from the 50's and on he many times will have a complete collection of one type of aircraft all serial numbers and various paint jobs . So if you are looking for a specific scheme I might be able to help
