W.Nr. 350189, 12./JG 5, Herdla, Norway, Spring 1945
The end of the war found 9th and 12th Staffels JG 5 stationed at Herdla. While 9th Staffel flew a mix of Fw 190A-2/3/8s, and even the odd Fw 190F-8
used exclusively in the fighter role, 12th Staffel was equipped with the Fw 190A-8. Fw 190s flown by 12./JG5 carried the standard camouflage scheme
consisting of RLM 74/75/76 and have been photographed on several occasions carrying the Defence of the Reich yellow and black fuselage band on the
rear fuselage. The code was rendered in blue, consistent with the Staffel, as were the cowl ring and spinner.
