    Can anyone please provide me with serial numbers of any P-51D-5NT or P-51D-20NA Mustangs that were shot down by the Luftwaffe?

    edit: Any crashes due to mechanical failure that occurred en route on a mission in the European theater would also help.

    several -20NA's
    44-63162 flak Minden POW 45-01-20
    44-63185 flak Straubing A/d POW 45-04-16
    44-63869 Lost chasing UFO KY ANG pilot killed in crash 48-01-07
    44-64011 flak Ansbach A/d POW 45-04-08
    44-72186 flak Wurzburg A/d POW 45-03-22
    44-72306 MAC Schwarmstedt ne Bremen 45-04-07 KIA
    44-72427 air Korea MiG 15 Evade 51-09-13

    All 355th FG during and post war. No -5Nt's or -20NA's were shot down by Luftwaffe in air to air combat - only one lost in air to air was MiG15 in 1951 and maybe UFO over Kentucky in 1948.

    Why?

    FYI the 355th FG lost 42 aircraft (10 P-47s, 26 P-51B, 6 P-51D) air to air vs LW for 356 Victory credits - but lost 90 (1 P-47, 89 P-51s) to German flak for 509 ground credits, with air to air ratio definitely better than ground scores.
