Messerschmitt Me 323
Partially cannibalized Messerschmitt Me 323 D Gigant transport aircraft. The only recognizable part of the aircraft's code is the red letter C (or a partially obscured G or O).
Note heavy exhaust staining on wing. Engines, outer wing sections, and tail section have been removed. Two Me 323 rudders can be seen on the ground between aircraft and camera. Location is likely the Demyansk pocket, 1942. (Fischer collection)
