Georg "Murr" Schott gained scored three victories while serving with the Condor Legion in the Spanish Civil War with the Condor Legion. He later claimed his first victories of World War 2 while serving with 2./LG 2, downing two RAF Hurricanes 19 May 1940. Oberfeldwebel Schott was to receive confirmation for only one of these victories. He claimed a total of four confirmed victories during the French campaign. Schott added eight further victories during the Battle of Britain. On 6 September 1940, he shot down a Spitfire fighter for his ninth victory and a day later claimed two further victories over the same type (10-11). In April 1942, Schott was transferred to IV./JG 1, based at Doberitz in Germany to assist with its formation. He was assigned to 10./JG 1. On 1 April 1943, 10./JG 1 was redesignated 1./JG 1. Leutnant Schott was appointed Staffelkapitän of 1./JG 1 on 1 June 1943, replacing Oberleutnant Hans Munz who had been shot down and killed on 21 May 1943. On 22 June, Schott shot down a USAAF B-17 for his 17th victory. On 19 August 1943, Schott claimed his 20th, and last, victory when he shot down B-17. On 27 September 1943, Oberleutnant Schott was shot down during aerial combat with Allied bombers over the North Sea. He successfully baled out of his stricken Fw 190 A-6 (W.Nr. 550 476) "White 11", landing in the sea. He managed to climb into his dinghy. However, an intensive search for him proved futile and the Schott's remains and his dinghy were washed ashore on a beach of the island of Sylt on 11 October 1943.

Focke-Wulf Fw 190A

Designed by Kurt Tank, the Fw-190A was first flown on June 1st, 1939. This small, yet ferociously-powered aircraft was fast and maneuverable and packed a fierce armament package earning it the nickname "Butcher Bird". The wide landing gear, excellent visibility and high-altitude paddle-bladed propeller endeared it to pilots familiar with the shortcomings of its predecessor - the Messerschmitt Bf 109. Some of the Luftwaffe's most famous fighter aces flew the Fw 190. Many variants were produced during the war, with the most notable being the inline-engine equipped and longer-nosed 190D, known as the "Dora."
