On 29 Nov 1943 II./JG 3 got the order to fly from their homebase to Volkel
in order to intercept the incoming American Air Force near the German border
Unteroffizier Fritz Kostenbader from 5./JG 3 was airborne from Volkel for his third flight
Together with his "Rottenflieger" ( Wingman ) Lt. Leopold Münster, Leader of this "Staffel"
Around 14.00 uur it came to a dogfight, Münster shot down two P-38's
Kostenbader stayed the whole time with Münster, when the "Gruppe" stopped the fight
Kostenbader was out of sight. He didn't return from this flight
