Bf109-E of Major Helmut Wick, Geschwaderkommodore of JG2. 28th November Wick was shot down by F/Lt J. Dundas who in turn was shot down and killed by Wick's wingman, 'Rudi' Pflanz. Wick jettisoned his canopy and jumped over the side. The solitary parachute drifting down towards the sea south-west of The Needles would be the last anybody ever saw of the Luftwaffe's leading ace, for an intensive air and sea search failed to find Wick.
