March 31, 1945

On March 31st, 1945, Herbert Altner is flying again, the first time after his crash on March 27th, 1945, and the death of his radio operator.


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.
