Fw 190A-3, W. Nr. 130541, Fw. E. Mayer, 9./JG 5, Herdla, Norway, March 1945
Even as late as 1945, there were several examples of the Fw 190A-2 and A-3 serving with 9./JG 5 Eismeer
along side of Fw 190A-8s and some F-8s. These would take part in the protection of the area and of the Norwegian shoreline.
This Fw 190A-3 was painted RLM 74/75/76 and carried the JG 5 unit marking on the port side of the engine
cowl. The white fuselage band identified aircraft of III. Gruppe JG 5. The white colouring of the front of the
airplane was specific to the 9. Staffel.
