Fw. Alfred Bindseil, Luftwaffe
Based in Stormede, Germany with 6./JG 1, Feldwebel Alfred Bindseil, scored five victories during WWII. In May of 1944, Bindseil claimed an unconventional victory when he used the propeller of his FW-190 to cut the tail off of a P-51 Mustang. Bindseil was later jumped by British Spitfire fighters over France, where he never returned to base. Over 700 allied aircraft of the Western Front and northern occupied Europe were shot down by JG 1 (Jagdgeschwader 1). The unit would eventually become the only Luftwaffe unit to convert to the unique, jet-propelled Heinkel He 162A "Volksjager" fighter. The FW-190 Yellow 11 can be seen at Luftfahrtmuseum Laatzen in Hanover, Germany.
