1/48 Hasegawa Bf109 G-10 flown by Oberfeldwebel Heinrich Bartels.
On 23 December 1944, Bartels took off for his last and fatal mission. Most likely he was shot down by P-47 Thunderbolt fighters of the USAAF 56th Fighter Group. Some 24 years later, on 26 January 1968, Bartels’ Bf 109 G-10 (Werknummer 130 359—factory number) “Yellow 13” was found in Villip near Bad Godesberg. In its cockpit was Bartels’ intact parachute, which is currently on display at the Deutsches Technikmuseum Berlin.
