Messerschmitt Bf 110 undergoing Repairment in Greece

Two photographs of Messerschmitt Bf 110 E-3 L2+KR of 7.Staffel (Fern) / Lehrgeschwader 2 (LG 2), taken in May 1941 following the entry of German forces into Greece, probably at the Athens-Kalamaki airport. The aircraft's tail section has sustained battle damage. The right rudder had been damaged previously, this time the Bf 110 was hit in the tailwheel and left rudder. The number of technicians examining the tailwheel suggests that the damage was something out of the ordinary. Note the Bf 110's gray camouflage scheme, the yellow elevators and the retouched finish on the vertical stabilizers. Beneath the fuselage is the "Gartenzaun" (Garden Fence) antenna of the FuG III - a U instrument-landing system - and the DF loop of the Peil G V.
