The aircraft depicted is the rarely painted FW 190 A5-U8 and was the personal aircraft of Fritz Setzer of 5/SKG 10.
The Fock-Wulf's of II/SKG 10 had been carrying out highly successful daylight attacks on the south coast of England since the Gruppe's formation in Mar. 1943. Their luck was to change however on their first nocturnal attack on 16/17 April. On this occasion, the combination of darkness, the intense flak barrage over London, opposition from nightfighters and an increased cockpit workload for the pilots all proved too much. Setzer's aircraft was one of three to make a forced landing at West Malling, a fourth crashed further south and another was lost over the Channel.
