Bucker Bu.131 Jungmann - Germany (Nazi)
Serial: CW+BG (50, W.Nr.483) Unit: FFS(A)43 Backer Bu.131. CW+BC. Werk Nummer 483. was flown by a pupil from FFS(A)43 at Crailsheim (Germany), who landed at Basle, Switzerland, on 14 June 1944, having mistaken the city for Strassburg. Finished in overall RLM 71 Dunkelgrun with RLM 65 undersides, the machine is a classic example of a late-war trainer. It is exceptionally fully marked by virtue of its unit emblem, school number (50) and white outlined Stammkenzeichen fuselage codes and fuselage crosses. The German pilot expressed a preference for internment and the aircraft was consequently flown back to Freiburg by a Swiss pilot.
