Bf109G-6 from 5./JG52

A very low resolution photo of this aircraft turned up on Ebay some years ago, as far as I can remember no details were known. Looking at the style of the markings with the small numerals and yellow band directly aft of the balkenkreuz it seems highly likely to be a 5./JG52 aircraft. 

In fact, the markings are almost identical to the ones on the famous Black 15 flown by Walter Wolfrum. The medium color spinner looks like it could be red, just like on Black 15. Given the high number and red spinner it may even have been Walter Wolfrums reserve aircraft but that is pure speculation.
