  7. Troy asked "were the German markings reinstated for some reason post war?" and I think the answer is yes the German markings were repainted on the aircraft but during the war. In his book "The Captive Luftwaffe" Kenneth West states "Soon after its capture (in July 1944) this Ju 88 was repainted with German markings and the code 3K-MH and used in the making of an AI.Mk.10 radar training film. It was later transferred to the Enemy Aircraft Flight, Tangmere on 17th May 1945.
  8. Photos show that this Ju 88 landed in the UK in the Luftwaffe colours but it was later repainted in RAF colours. This link shows it in RAF colours with a Swastika on the tail with a small RAF roundel superimposed on the centre of the Swastika JU 88 G-1 TP190 Does the in-flight photo above show the aircraft in faded RAF colours with the Swastike painted out in fresh paint?
