After the research on USAAF Mission #63 is winding down a bit, I hope to get a chance to work on a couple of other topics and finish at least one of these until the end of the year (yes, research takes time…)
In no particular order, this is what I got lined up (unless some surprise shows up):
- Got the flight log of Fw. Karl Hirschberger – 2.(H)/14 – starting August 1939 and ending with his last flight on in April 1942, when he died in North Africa while flying reconnaissance missions out of Martuba airfield.
- Got a flight log of Uffz. Helmut Vycital – KG 100 & KG 4 – starting in 1943 and ending in January 1945, serving the Eastern Front.
- …and maybe longer term trying to get started on another USAAF Mission – possibly #91 to Stuttgart (Sept 6, 1943) or #108 to Frankfurt & Wiesbaden (October 4, 1943)
Don’t expect anything too soon – especially on the USAAF Missons: the last one – #63, Bremen & Kiel – took roughly three month…
