One member of this crew used to belong to 5./JG 26. None of the members had previously belonged to KG 30. W.Nr. 0880133 was painted on fuselage in wing root area.
The nose of this aircraft has been modified to a pointed all-metall nose. To increase the speed, the external bomb racks and the diving brakes have been removed. The wing construction has also been lightened. The armament had been increased by the addition of four fixed guns in the nose.(Three MG's and a cannon.)
In 1944 another German aircraft made a crash landing at the same area. Ju 52 See
To av mannskapet var såpass uskadet at de tok seg ned til gården Åbjøra for og hente hjelp til tredjemann som lå skadet ved flyet. Han ble fraktet ned på kjelke dagen etter.
The aircraft is now (2020) on display at the NØFMF collection in Tolga. (See below).
