    Gentlemen, these parts were found at one place in a large wooden area southeast of Vienna, Austria. It's totally unclear what type of aircraft they belong to. According eyewitnesses several aircraft crashed into this wood during ww2. I hope for your opinions. Thanks alot. - Kurtl

    German.

    Black disc looks like a trim wheel.

    Can you resize the pics to 800-100 pixels wide please?

    Sorry for the large format. Did not know that they would show that big on the forum.

    The number on the trim wheel shows: R8-110.400-0111 AEG" and "3115.4".

    The round part with the glass lens looks like the head of a reflector gun sight. It looks similar to an American N-9, but if its German of course it wouldn't be

    i keep looking at the 2 pics of the second piece and am thinking this is part of a gun or cannon. the eagle with swastika stamped icons are simular to what ihave seen on german weaponry. i do not know if they stamped ALL forged and machined piece of equipment but i do know they did to weapons. they also we big on matching serial numbers but didnt always stamp the entire #...sometimes just the last 2 or 3 digits. hence the 42 on the other side could be either part of the serial # or a year that part was manufactured. i could be completely wrong but that is the way it appears to me.

    Gentlemen,

    As it appears now these parts belong to a Messerschmitt Me 110. The wheel shows a number which identifies it as a "Trimmrad" (trimm wheel) out of the cockpit of a Me 110. The other part shows the middle section of a Luftwaffe flare pistol.

    Recently some more parts were found. I think one could be the part of the stick. What do you think?

    Was going to suggest a Bf 110, from the first part of the code (R8 - 110...). Great find mate!
