Built at Erla in Leipzig in 1942, Heinz Lüdermann was flying with 8./JG 27 over the African desert when, after being damaged by a Curtis P-40, he force-landed at Gambut. The aircraft was captured by British troops on 31-Nov-1942. It was shipped to Liverpool where it underwent evaluation trials as RN228. It was put into storage, then later restored and flew the airshow circuit in the 1990s as G-USTV. Unfortunately she crashed again on 12-Oct-1997 at Duxford. Now restored to non-flying condition.

In this case, I convey our gratitude to another person. I copied part of the description from a photograph by Jiri Zedka. It was difficult for me to add something to this. All of his photographs have a detailed history of the object.
