Focke-Wulf Fw 190D-13/R11, W.Nr. 836017, Stab./JG 26, Flensburg - Weiche, Germany, May 1945 This aircraft had belonged to JG 26 and was captured by the RAF at Flensburg – Weiche airfield on May 5, 1945. It is highly possible that this aircraft was flown by Major Franz Götz, CO of JG 26 (Ritterkreuz holder, 63 victories). Yellow '10' is said to be Götz´s lucky number. The small Ace of Spades badge on both fuselage sides refers to his career in the role of III./JG 53 'Pik As' commanding officer. The small inscription on the lower part of the cowling is not accurately known – the most often mentioned likelihood is 'Kontrolliert', seen on other German aircraft. The R11 designation indicates installation of the PKS 12 autopilot, and the letter 'R' stands for Rüstsatz ('additional set' in German). The WFG factory camouflage scheme was darkened using RLM 82 and RLM 83 colours
