    German focke wulf 190 work number 170735 The Pilot Unteroffizier Horst Gabel was killed. The aircraft was shot down by Allied fighters on the 15th June 1944 during the air battles over Normandy and the plane crashed at Rabodanges south of Falaise.

    The Foce wulf 190 saw heavy action in the 1944 Normandy campaign. German fighters flew 760 sorties on 6 June 1944 against an Allied total of 14,000. By 10 June, the dearth of specialised ground attack aircraft forces meant the planes were ordered to install bomb racks for these types of operations. Just 24 hours later, the Focke wulf 190 units were asked to revert to air superiority roles again. With conflicting orders and harried by Allied air forces, losses were heavy. In the space of three weeks, 200 Focke wulf 190s and 100 pilots were lost to enemy action. Total losses by the end of June 1944 totalled 230 pilots killed and 88 wounded. 551 German fighters were shot down, with another 65 destroyed on the ground. A further 290 were damaged. In return, German pilots claimed 526 Allied aircraft destroyed.
