Ok, for me, this an amazing picture!!!

Image
Ju 88 D-1 from 1.(F)/120. Touched sea surface during mission on england, but managed
to return safe. Flew 700 km with destroyed propellers back to Sola. 10 % damage, not listed. Date unknown, Possibly after may 1943


As you can see, the plane's belly is totally damaged as the blades are destroyed. While recovering from a dive, the plane hit the water!!!!! Coming back from Scotland, the plane and the crew made up their way back to Norway!!! Imagine that even with this unbalanced rotation of the propellers, the engine mounts didn't broke out!!!!

Max - do your files state from which ship the Arado was photographed?
HK 'Orion' had a mishap - the description of which exactly matches the picture of the inverted Ar 196?
I´m sorry mate. I don´t have available information as to exactly where this accident happened.
But it could just might be that HK `Orion´ mishap.

Speaking of that low flight, A7H's have a bad fame flying low... they even have problems with corrosion as they fly too low and sometimes waves or splashes of seawater reaches them.... we are talking less than 10ft flight! Ofcourse this is subsonic jet and the above mentioned aircraft are WWII era normal planes!

so here are a few more from my files...
Mr. Max, can you specify the source of photos you posted? They appear to have been copied from my site, with the original source cut off:
http://aviatia.cda.ro/Denes_Luftwaffe/S ... hters.html
If so, please either mention the photos' proper source, or delete them.
Thank you.

I am not sure if this particular foto was taken from your site (I could have, don´t remenber at this moment).
I am sorry.


Apparently, those two scans were copied from my web site and the original source cut off.
I often tend to remove any unwanted words from pictures on my files. I have done that to ALL the pictures on my files.
I personally like to see them without any words messing up such a fine piece of history. It would be much nicer if everyone would put the copyright names on the border of the pictures (on the side) instead of right on top of the picture. Just awful, in my opinion.
That's O.K., as long as the scans stay on your hard drive for your personal use. However, as soon as you publish them on the web it's not O.K.
I will always post it from where I have taken the picture, and give credit to that fine person that posted it up for everyone to see.
O.K. Then please modify your original post and mention the proper source of photos, or delete them.
Nothing personal, just following the rules.

Modifying photographs to hide the oiginal sources is not acceptable, regardless of the motive.

Modify the posts which includes photographs which are not fromyour personal collection with the appropriate sources, and include sources in all future posts!
