Helmet Wick joined the Luftwaffe in 1936 and promoted to Lieutenant in 1938. In October 1940, at the age of 25 Wick became the youngest Luftwaffe Major and Kommodore of JG-2. On October 28, 1940 while piloting Me-109 5344 Wick claimed his 55th and 56th victories before being shot down by John Dundas just before Dundas was shot down by Rudi Pflanz. Wick managed to bail out and his chute was seen opening before hitting the English Channel but he was never seen again.

Messerschmitt Bf 109E

Designed to meet a Luftwaffe need for a single-seat fighter/interceptor, the Messerschmitt Bf 109 was first flown on May 28th, 1935. Its all-metal construction, closed canopy and retractable gear made the Bf 109 one of the first true modern fighters of WWII. This versatile aircraft served in many roles and was the most produced aircraft of the war and the backbone of the Luftwaffe, and was flown by Germany's top three aces, who claimed a total of 928 victories between them. Armed with two cannons and two machine guns, the Bf 109's design underwent constant revisions, which allowed it to remain competitive until the end of the war.
