This aircraft was originally “Black 14”, assigned to 2.(H)/14, Aufklärungsgruppe 14, and equipped with a Rb50/30 camera. It was shot down on February 20th 1943 in Tunisia. After a belly landing it was captured by British troops and later given to the Americans. Members of the 79th FG restored it to flying condition, the camera was removed at some point and the hole covered with a panel. In November 1943 the aircraft was sent to Wright Field for tests and afterwards written off.
