Hans Dortenmann was a German fighter ace with 38 aerial victories accredited to his name. Joining the Luftwaffe in 1941, Dickfeld would fight throughout Europe. On 29 March 1945, Dortenmann became Staffelkapitän of 3./JG 26 and awarded the Knight's Cross of the Iron Cross less than a month later. Dortenmann claimed his final victory on 27 April 1945 over Berlin during the closing days of the war.

Hans Dortenmann flew a Focke-Wulf Fw 190 D9 during the Battle of Berlin. With 18 victories in the D-9, Dortenmann is considered to be the most successful Dora-9 fighter pilot.

Another excellent work of art.
Its amazing how the inline engine totally changed the contours of the Fw190 and made it so sleek looking.
