    The plane looks like a Russian Tupelov SB-2......Pete.

    That's a nice find, Jan! I too am actively looking for JG 5 stuff at the moment

    The aircraft is not an SB-2 but a German Focke-Wulf Fw 58 Weihe. The bear, if I remember correctly, is the emblem of 5./JG 5, Staffel 5 of JG 5.

    Thumbs up

    Yes indeed the "Eisbär" is the symbol of Staffel 5. 5./JG5 was stationed at Petsamo and remained there until early 1943. Thank you so much for identifying the aircraft !!
