Altner-4

Interestingly, he notes a flight with another Messerschmitt Me 262 B-1a/U1, he identifies her as “Rote 8”[1]engl.: Red 8. If his entries are correct, someone else must have picked up the aircraft at Berlin-Staaken where it was delivered to 10./NJG 11 – his flights that day are from and to the airfield at Burg.
