I am a hobby aviation historian. My chosen research theme is autogyros and helicopters developed in Germany during the period 1930-1945. The results of my research were published a while back by Classic Publications in a book entitled 'Helicopters of The Third Reich'. My research remains ongoing as I'd one day like to be able to produce a revised and expanded version of my book.

Recently via E-Bay, I acquired a photo of an Fa 223 helicopter at Munich-Reim which had come from the estate of a former 843rd guy, Sgt. James N Osborne. I'd be very intrigued to hear if any similar photos exist as a small number of captured helicopters passed through Munich-Reim on their way northward for shipping to the USA. My understanding is that at this point in time, the 843rd was based at Munich-Oberwiesenfeld so I imagine some guys had made a brief visit down the road.

I'd also welcome hearing from anyone who has any interesting photos of German aircraft taken in Southern Germany during 1945.
