The Mechanics
Hungarian Air Force mechanics on the Russian front keeping the Messerschmitt Bf 109 ready for combat. The air-plane mechanics were just like in any Air Force, essential personnel and their skill and expertise were just as important then any fighter-ace for the war effort.

Part of the same group of mechanics in front of a Hungarian Messerschmitt Bf 109 in vintner painting. These photos are a part of a large photographic heritage of mechanic squad-leader Ernö Simon, standing to the left of the Messerschmitt Bf 109 propeller in the top photograph.
