This aircraft is dedicated to Franz Stigler, a real hero


Franz
This is a Bf-109f Tropical, White 12, group JG-27, belonging to Franz Stigler. Born on August 15, 1918 in Germany was Ludwig Franz Stigler, also known as Franz. The son of a WWI reconnaissance pilot, he loved flight from an early age, was employed by Lufthansa, and flew JU-52's. He was brought into service in the Luftwaffe as an instructor, but after the death of his brother August, who flew JU-88's, he decided to become a fighter pilot, and was stationed in north Africa, in the legendary "Desert Squadron" JG-27, under the command of "Edu" Neumann. Franz quickly became an ace, although by personal choice, didn't mark up his rudder for his victories. Along with many other Luftwaffe pilots, he followed an unwritten code of honor in combat, and was told by his squadron leader, Roedel, that if he ever heard or saw Franz shooting at a man in a parachute, he would shoot him down himself. Nothing shows his honor more than what he did when he encountered the B-17 Ye Olde Pub on Dec. 20 1943. Read about it here
