Bode's flying career began when he joined the German Air Transport School, a covert military-training organization, operating as a flying school in Germany. Bode rapidly rose to become a flight instructor there. Bode joined the Luftwaffe in 1936 as reservist, and became First Lieutenant (Oberleutnant) on June 1938. He showed a strong natural ability as a pilot. Bode was appointed Gruppenkommandeur of III./StG 77 on May 1940. After various assignments in France, Britain, Balkans and on the Eastern front. Bode was awarded the Knight's Cross of the Iron Cross on October 10, 1941, and in 1942 was given command of the Stuka group training to be used on the (never completed) German aircraft carrier Graf Zeppelin. From here he moved to training and liaison with the Bulgarian Army. He survived the war, joined the Bundeswehr in 1955, and became a colonel in the West German Air Force, dying in 1985.
