UNDER NEW MANAGEMENT: GOOD SHOW! Heinkel He-111H Wk.Nr.6853 code (1H+EN) once assigned to II./KG 26 sits alone and abandoned by the Germans, on a Libyan airfield, February 9, 1940. SUPPLY RUNS: Aircraft was later given the RAF s/n AW 177 with code (HS-?) and was flown to Alexandra, Egypt for mess supplies! Note the crude RAF markings on wings and fuselage...
