The following extracts give the details of each aircraft as they appear in the original report (including the question marks). None of the entries gives the colour of the aircraft's tactical number. Comments have been added in brackets where the recorded data seems at variance with the present understanding of Werk Nummer series, for example.

ZELTWEG (Page 2)

Also present on the airfield, were five Fw 190 D-9s and thirteen radial engined machines, many of them fitted to carry Panzerblitz anti-tank rockets.

At Klagenfurt, there were three Fw 190 F-9s equipped only with conventional bomb racks.


Tomas Poruba has suggested that the D-9s at Zeltweg probably belonged to II./SG10, since this was the only unit in the area with the type. However aircraft are highly mobile, so it's always possible they were refugees from elsewhere.
