Gefr. Walter Wagner was one of the many victims of Unternehmen Bodenplatte. While attacking St. Trond airfield, Wagner's FW 190 A-8/R2 'White 11 + -' was hit by anti-aircraft fire and he was wounded. He subsequently force-landed at St. Trond and was captured by the Americans. His aircraft carried J.G. 4's black/white/black RV band, and the unit emblem on the forward fuselage.
