History[edit | edit source]
Originally assigned to Stab/JG 27 as SM+NQ, this aircraft was being flown by Uffz. Leonhard Buckle when it force-landed, after getting lost and running out of fuel, during a mail delivery flight from Cherbourg-Ouest to Strasbourg on 28 August 1940. Three days later, 1115 was flown to the Royal Aircraft Establishment, receiving RAF markings, including it's new serial of BV207. Flown to Ashton Down in January 1941, the aircraft ended it's career as maintenance airframe 2682M with 20 MU, and was presumably scrapped.
