Focke-Wulf Fw 190 A-2; W.Nr. 0125228, “Chevron L”, flown by Ofw. Erwin Leibold of Stab I./JG 26, St. Omer-Arques, France, July 1942. This aircraft was finished in the usual scheme of the period, consisting of RLM 74/75/76 camouflage colours, and yellow identification areas on the rudder and under-cowling. Moreover, it featured another variation of the black areas applied to both fuselage sides, and an interesting set of black Stab markings edged in white. The spinner was painted RLM 70. Eleven red victory bars were applied on the rudder. Ofw. Leibold, who was Hptm. Seifert’s wingman, didn’t record any more victories. He lost his life when he crashed “Chevron L” after combat on the 26th July 1942 at St. Omer-Arques.

Focke-Wulf Fw 190 A-2; W.Nr. 0125299, “Blue 2”, flown by Lt. Leopold Wenger of 10.(Jabo)/JG 2, Caen-Carpiquet, France, mid-August 1942. “Blue 2” carried RLM 74/75/76 camouflage. The engine under-cowling and rudder were yellow, but the latter was toned down by spraying grey mottle. Both sides of the engine cowling were adorned with the emblem of 10.(Jabo)/JG 2; a red fox with ship grasped in its mouth. The spinner was painted RLM 70. Please note the centerline bomb rack and lack of outer wing cannons. Lt. “Poldi” Wenger damaged this aircraft during take-off at Caen-Carpiquet on the 19th August 1942.
