This Dewoitine D.520 with serial 544 originally was operated by Groupe de Chasse III/9 which flew from Hyères and later, after the armistice between Germany and Vichy-France, was operated by JG 103, that flew out of Brussels-Evere Airport, Belgium, 1944-1945. With the liberation of the Brussels area this aircraft changed hands again, as we have pictures of the aircraft together with Polish ground crew of 308 Sqn RAF.
