Bf-209E-3 "White 1" was flown by Oblt. Otto Bertram with 1./JG 2 "Richtofen" claiming his first victory on April 20, 1940. Three of his four victories in the Battle of France came in May 1940. By October 1940 Bertram had thirteen victories plus nine victories he scored earlier in Spain gave him a total of twenty two. In October 1940 Bertram was appointed Hauptmann for III./JG 2 and awarded the Knight's Cross. He was removed from active duty because his two brothers had died in action and he was considered "Last Son" status.

Messerschmitt Bf 109E

Designed to meet a Luftwaffe need for a single-seat fighter/interceptor, the Messerschmitt Bf 109 was first flown on May 28th, 1935. Its all-metal construction, closed canopy and retractable gear made the Bf 109 one of the first true modern fighters of WWII. This versatile aircraft served in many roles and was the most produced aircraft of the war and the backbone of the Luftwaffe, and was flown by Germany's top three aces, who claimed a total of 928 victories between them. Armed with two cannons and two machine guns, the Bf 109's design underwent constant revisions, which allowed it to remain competitive until the end of the war.
