late war crash-landed Fw 190s -SG 10, JG 51 and JG 300

These interesting Fw 190 shots are reposted from the FB Fw 190 group for Luftwaffe blog readers (..on the basis that many blog readers do not use FB ) - a III./SG 10 Focke Wulf Fw 190 F-8 shot down over Holice, Czechoslovakia, on 6 May 1945. The rudder appears to be un-mottled and is probably yellow. There also appears to be a yellow cowl band..generally speaking any yellow ID marked II. or III. Gruppe ground-attack Fw 190 was an aircraft of SG 10 (Luftflotte 4 ID markings).

The following shots are were captioned as Fw 190 A-8 "Black Chevron 1" WNr. 739 141", Stab I./JG 51, Jarlstengaard near Sandby, 8 May 1945. Note bulged hood and (presumably) white winter camo finish..

A-8 WNr 681844 'Red 7' shot down on 17 December 1944. Pilot Uffz. Karl Reif was seriously injured
