W. Nr. 211164, Stab/JG 6, Prag – Rusin, Czechoslovakia, May 1945
Dora W. Nr. 211164 found at Prague-Rusin airfield after WWII, in all probability belonged to Stab/JG 6. The upper cowling was painted in RLM 81 as well as the rest of the fuselage except for the rear, which was sprayed RLM 82. The tail section
had previously been painted with a light colored tailband, which was oversprayed with RLM 81. The same colour was used
for spots sprayed on the vertical tail surface. Wing upper surfaces were in RLM 81/ 82 too. The forward part of the wing
undersides were painted RLM 81. Note the lack of a white spiral on the propeller spinner that was prescribed for all fighter
aircraft engaged in the Western theatre of operations from July 1944 onwards.
