Henschel Hs 123
Crashed Henschel Hs 123 A-1 L2+KM of Lehrgeschwader 2 (LG 2), likely photographed at Tutow, late 1930s (exact date currently unknown to me). Camouflage is the early style of 61/62/63/65. It appears that the aircraft suffered a mishap which sheared off its fixed landing gear, as evidenced by the damage to propeller.
Parts of the aircraft have apparently already been salvaged, and the missing forward fuselage panels and cowling reveal the BMW 132 Dc radial engine. A section of the detached upper wing can be seen in the foreground. (Fischer collection)
