He 172 had NACA fairings and other changes, Townend fairings were used to increase performance of standard He 72s. I have seen claims of 10-20 km/h more level speed

Thanks, Denniss

I have read that the He 172 did not go into production due to the minimal gain in performance compared to the normal He 72....so I guess that a He 72 with Townend engine fairing It would not improve much compared to the standard He 72 either..... :roll:

Hi, all!

This is a wartime photo from my grandfather (on the left), probably taken on the Eastern Front.

What do we see here? Two soldiers under a Strabo-Kran loading/unloading the fuselage of an aircraft (Ju 88?).

But why? In the photo I don't find any damage to the aircraft, which might mean, that it is sent back to Germany for repair. Did Germany send new dismantled aircraft to the front due to lack of pilots for transfer?

If that left is the front section it looks more like a glassy crew area which would make it a Ju 188.
It was common to send airframes back to rear depots or home for major repairs/scrapping
