Born on November 21 1919, Josef 'Pepi' Jennewein initially achieved fame as a world champion Alpine skier. However, he’s perhaps better remembered as a German Luftwaffe ace pilot during World War II. Jennewein began his flight training in 1940 and upon completion in the summer of 1941 he was transferred to 4.(Eins)/JFS 5 based on the Channel Front. On September 20, 1941 he claimed his first victories over three Spitfires. He claimed 23 victories in July 1943, including five on July 21st. On July 27 1943, after aerial combat east of Orel, Jennewein had to force-land his Fw 190A-6 behind Russian lines and was never seen again. He had flown 271 missions and claimed 86 victories, five on the Western Front and 81 on the Eastern Front. He was promoted in absentia to Leutnant and awarded the Knight's Cross of the Iron Cross posthumously.Cockpit details
