Description View of a Messerschmitt Bf 109G fighter. This aircraft had been shot down in Tunisia by British ground forces on 1 March 1943. After being repaired, the plane (named "Irmgard" by its German pilot) was flown by pilots of the USAAF 79th Fighter Group. "Irmgard" ended its life as a structural test vehicle at Wright Field, Ohio (USA), in early 1944. This is where this photo was probably taken, as the aircraft in the background seems to be a Bell P-59 Airacomet.
