Hauptmann Hans Weik


Weik began his career in JG3 in Russia before moving to Defence of the Reich duties with IV/JG3[Sturm], a dedicated 'Sturmgruppe Unit' with heavily armed & armoured Fw190A fighters. Weik scored many victories over US B-17 and B-24 heavy bombers but was then heavily wounded in July 1944. He did not return to flying duties until April 1945, when he reported to EJG/2 and flew the Me262 jet. Weik scored 36 Victories, of which 22 were US heavy bombers.
