Messerschmitt Bf 109s of KG(J) 6
The difficulties connected with implementation of Me 262 into operational service especially the lack of experienced fighters resulted in a rare process of retraining pilots from disbanded Kampfgeschwaders to jet fighters. The end of the process – combat sorties of retrained pilots with Me 262s - is described in the title “Messerschmitt Me 262s of KG & KG(J) Units”.
The new title will deal with initial phase when retraining of KG(J) 6 personnel started in Czech area during autumn 1944. We would try to describe the reasons and the course of this action till the final operational sorties in 1945. The main attention will be dedicated to the main machine used for the training - Messerschmitt Bf 109.
