IV. Gruppe JG 53 was formed out of III. Gruppe JG 76 at Hufingen, not far from the border with Switzerland at the

end of October 1944 and was equipped with later versions of the Bf 109G. Later, the unit also was equipped with

the more modern Messerschmitt Bf 109K. As a Defence of the Reich unit, it fought over the southern sector of the

Western Front until the end of April 1945, when it was disbanded.

‚Black 30‘ was discovered by advancing Allied troops at Bad Wörishofen. The rear fuselage had a 900 mm wide black

fuselage band, an identifier used by JG 53 when in the Defence of the Reich system. The wave bar on the rear fuselage

was reserved for aircraft of the IV. Gruppe.
