Another German He 177 Bomber Picture From George White’s Collection

 He 177

This is a rare picture of another damaged Heinkel He 177 bomber from my dad’s collection.

It is just captioned “German Bomber”.  There is no indication of a Werk Number or a location where this picture was taken.

He 177 back

This photo however clearly shows the four engine configuration driving the two big four bladed propellers.

Unfortunately there are no 403 Wolf Squadron Erks playing in this aircraft.

      Luftwaffe aircrew nicknamed it the Luftwaffenfeuerzeug (Luftwaffe’s lighter) or the “Flaming Coffin” due to the serious engine problems on initial versions. Many of these stemmed from the power plants’ installation in their wing nacelles,[3] which caused cooling problems which were never completely solved.
