The aircraft belonged to 1./ JG 11 and was coded White 1+
T/o Lister. Op: Air defence.


Early in the afternoon a number of FW 190`s attacked a formation of American B 17`s returning towards England after having bombed the harbour in Trondheim and Porsgrun. The FW 190`s did not claim any bombers but lost two aircrafts over the North Sea about 50-80 kilometres south of Lister.

One of these was piloted by Staffelkapitän Hauptmann Erwin Linkiewicz who was found washed ashore on the beach 3 kilometres east of Skiveren in the Tannisbugt bay on 12/8 1943.
He was laid to rest in Frederikshavn cemetery on 17/8 1943.

The FW 190 was a 100% loss.
