Franz Wienhausen White 21 part 1

http://www.cptfarrels.com/blog/Bf109G-14_Wienhausen_JG4_1200.jpg
Numerous publications are showing photographs of a Bf109 marked White 21 and belonging to Franz Wienhusen, the Gruppenkommandeur of IV./JG 4. In captions the aircraft has always been identified as being the Bf109G-10 with the W.Nr 130 282 that Wienhusen flew on the day of his death. One look at the camouflage pattern is enough to see that the aircraft pictured is an Erla built aircraft carrying the typical spotted mottle used by that factory. An additional photo in Mombeeks "Storming the bombers" shows that the White 21 seen in photos is most likely a regular Erla built Bf109G-14. As a second part of this article I'll be posting a 130 xxx range Bf109G-10 to show the differences.
