Messerschmitt Bf 109 G-6/AS/U2

Yellow 6, W.Nr. 412179 from 2./JG 3, Flown by Feldwebel Otto Büssow, Burg/Germany, 30 May 1944

On this day Fw Otto Büssow was shot down and killed in this machine during a dogfight near Bieliz. The Bf 109 was in fact his friends ObFw. Horst Petzschlers personal crate.

This Bf 109 G-6/AS was former a G-6 which was rebuilt as a AS machine at Erla-Antwerpen, one of 118 machiens of this type to be produced there.

This proile would be included in one of my fortcoming profile books, No 12-15?
