In October 1944 he was posted to the Messerschmitt-Werke at Regensberg, flying aircraft from the factory and delivering them to Luftwaffe units. The factory at Regensberg, near the Austrian border, was the main Messerschmitt plant responsible for building the Bf 109 fighter throughout the Second World War.
