  1. It is a nice set but i think noone is going to pay for it.
  2. Hi Kevin. Seems Wittenbrick was the only guy of the crew who died. I have no more details and i do not know if would be possible to get more info.
  3. He was Staffelkapitän of 11./KG 4 from 01.09.43 to 31.03.44 and 6./KG 4 from 31.03.44 to 09.08.44. During the night of 8/9 August 1944, Bading's 6. Staffel along with the rest of II. Gruppe attacked enemy armor and vehicle traffic crossing a pontoon bridge and an old wooden bridge that span the Vistula at Baranow/Poland. Bading's Heinkel 111H failed to return from the mission and is believed to have been shot down by Russian AA fire around the bridges. He and his 4 crew members were reported missing and a short time later declared dead.
