Hans-Ekkehard Bob 12753

Hans-Ekkehard Bob

This machine seem to have replaced Wrk.Nr 9207 as Bob's regular aircraft following the bellylanding on June 23rd. It was obviously rushed into action as the staffel emblem was unfinished on July 6th when this aircraft too was bellylanded, but this time by Eugen-Ludwig Zweigart, another pilot of 9./JG54.

The colors are RLM 74/75/76 and there's still traces of the Stammkennzeichen KC SH. The fuselageband is now placed in front of the fuselagecross. The yellow 1 superimposed on the band is quite unique, in fact, on the other side of the fuselage the numeral is placed in front of the band along the line between fuselagepanels 1 and 2 .
