    Air Ministry (or AM) numbers were allocated to Luftwaffe aircraft at their place of surrender in Germany or Denmark. On an airfield containing literally hundreds of German aircraft, this designation ensured that set aside aircraft were not destroyed. Allocations made at place of surrender (AM 1 to AM 123 inclusive)

    A few Ju 352 were captured and used. I cant see marking to id this Ju however.

    So it could be


    AM 8 - Junkers Ju352A-0 - W.Nr.100010 - coded KT+VJ of unknown unit - also coded VP550, scrapped December 1946

    AM 18 - Junkers Ju352A-1 - W.Nr.100015 - coded G6+WX of V./TG4 - scrapped December 1946

    AM 109 - Junkers Ju352A - W.Nr.unknown - coded G6+RX of V./TG4 - scrapped December 1946

    AM 110 - Junkers Ju352A - W.Nr.unknown - coded G6+SX of V./TG4 - scrapped

    (Information from LEMB)

    Were did you find the picture?
