Bf 110 serial number 3641 damaged at Einsatzhafen Rom 8/4 1941.


The aircraft belonged to 4. / ZG 76 and was coded ?
T/o Jever. Op:Escort Jever-Rom.


The 3641 was one of two Bf 110`s from 4./ ZG 76 that escorted Commander Oberstleutnant Carl Schumacher of JG 1 from Jever to Rom.

3641 was piloted by Leutnant Heiner Froehling while the other was piloted by Martin Drewes.
The first to land at Rom was Schumacher in his Bf 109. When the speed wore off it stood on its nose due to a soggy landing ground.
The next to land was Froehling, and the same thing happened and the Bf 110 was damaged 80%. No harm to the crew.
Drewes landed last and made a short landing and managed to stop his aircraft before he came to the soggy ground.
