The He 51 was the first fighter-plane of the Luftwaffe, a Bi-Plane...
Thanks for the info Glenn.
I found it with my metal detector but in the same area of the forest i found nothing else except this disc which was unusual
It's the Manufacturer's Tag of the Aircraft listing the Serial-Number, etc...I believe these can be researched, but that's out of my expertise...
No old Fliegerhorst in the area? I speculate this tag may have been attached to a crate of spare parts for this particular aircraft...(?)
Hi Glenn Plenty Army Barracks in Bielefeld but GŁtersloh and Detmold were the nearest Luftwaffe bases that i know of in the area.
If it can be researched then i will definately look into it a bit further.
wonder if it fell off the plane mid flight?
