Lothar Sachs flew Messerschmitt Me109G-6 fighters with 3/JG300 between 1943 and 1945.
JG300 flew specialist night fighter operations using Wilde Sau (Wild Boar) interception tactics to engage RAF night bombers over Germany. Without radar, they would fly over the target area and attack any Bomber Command aircraft unfortunate enough to be illuminated by searchlights or silhouetted against ground fires.
Unlike many of his colleagues, Lothar survived the war. He sadly died in 2005.
