Pilots of Jagdgeschwader 2 "Richthofen" relax by their Focke Wulf 190 fighters in France, 23rd June 1942. Amongst them is Oberleutnant Armin Faber, Adjutant to the commander of III/JG2. He had been given special permission to fly with 7th Staffel on this day.
The Focke Wulf 190 had only recently arrived with front line units. Its superior performance had caused the Allies so many problems that they were desperate to capture one for evaluation. Later this day, Faber was to accidentally hand them one intact.
