Hans Dobrich ended World War II credited with 65 ‘victories’. He flew with Jagdgeschwader 5 throughout his flying career, operating against Russian forces in and around Murmansk. He was shot down three times, the third occasion while flying this Messerschmitt Bf 109 F-4 Trop, Werknummer 10169. While most known photos show him with his 109 G-2 (at left), this F-4 Trop was the aircraft in which he attained most of his aerial ‘victories’. The outer wing of 10169 had been salvaged from another F-4 Trop, 10157, at an earlier time, and was excavated with the remains of 10169 in 2017, roughly 40 miles Northwest of Murmansk. The well-preserved paint on the wreckage included fragments of Dobrich’s famed ‘Yellow 10’, which adorned all of the aircraft he flew while with JG 5
