Focke Wulf Fw 190 D13/R11 'Yellow 10' of JG 26
The aviation art print Fw 190 D-13/R11 'Yellow 10' by Jerry Crandall shows the l7th D-13 manufactured by Focke Wulf and delivered to JG 26. 'Yellow 10' was captured by the Canadians at Flensburg at war's end. Oberst Heinz Lange, the Kommodore of JG 51 who flew D-9's, was asked by the RCAF in June 1945 with Günther Josten, also of JG 51, to fly this advanced fighter against the Hawker Tempest in mock combat. Feldwebel Gerhard Kroll flew D-9's with III./JG 54 as top cover for Kommando Nowotny's Me 262s. After Nowotny's death, Kroll was assigned to home defense. The III./JG 54 became IV./JG 26 on 25 February 1945, the unit flying D-9's and D-13's. In addition to the artist's signature each print is co-autographed by Luftwaffe pilots Dr. Heinz Lange and Gerhard Kroll.
