Captured Butcherbirds - Fw 190 F-8 "JFE " May 1945 - edited January 2017

Fw 190 F-8, WNr. unknown, captured by the British according to 'Captured Butcherbirds' on a Deutsche Lufthansa assembly line at Travemuende and test-flown during May 1945. It was eventually marked 'JFE', the initials of the CO of 127 Wing, Wing Commander J.F. Edwards

..and received recently from Dave Fleming;

"I don't think that is JFE, as in addition to a few differences in markings etc, those pics originate in an album from a South African pilot attached to 3 SAAF.."

A stunning album and thanks for the corection Dave!
