    Messerschmitt Bf110 G-2. Werk Nr.170068

    This aircraft was part of Zerstorer Staffel Erprobungskommando 25 and was shot down on 23rd April 1944 by a P38 Lightning and crashed into the Neusiedler See, on the Austro-Hungarian border 45 Km
    east of Vienna. The radio operator, was Feldwebel Karl Merk who was wounded.

    The remains of this aircraft were recovered from the lake in the spring of 1979.

    Does anybody have any information on who the pilot was or what happened to the recovered wreckage?

    Many thanks in advance
