This is Red 3 from the airfield protection flight of JV 44, based at München-Rein in April of 1945. The pilot was Haupmann Waldemar Wübke. Wübke was one of the Luftwaffe pilots who served from the beginning of the war to the end. He was a “Jabo” or fighter-bomber pilot, the inscription on his aircraft reads “Im Auftrage der Reichsbahn”, which means “By order of the State Railway” – a commonly-seen inscription on railcars hauling bombs. Although shot down and wounded on several occasions, Wübke survived the war with sixteen victories to his credit.
