KIA 18 August, 1944 per an article in Jager Blatt written by his friend, Ernst Pausinger. This, after combat with a P-51, from which he bailed over Gazanesti Romania, and his chute failed to open. Reported lost in the Liwny area on 26 June, 1942, cause unknown, but returned. His first known Soviet victory, a Douglas WSW of Brest-Litovsk on 22 June, 1941. An I-16 Rata and an Il-2 on 4 September, 1942. An La-5 on 8 September, 1942. Three Il-2s on 9 September, 1942. An La-5 on 12 September, 1942. An Il-2 on 18 September, 1942. A Yak-1 on 22 September, 1942. One known Desert victory, a B-17 6 km west of Beja on 29 January, 1943. His 2nd, a P-38 on 5 April, 1943. (One of these two may have been unconfirmed.) His 2nd, per OKL, a B-17 on 18 March, 1944, no location. His 3rd, a P-38 over Italy on 7 April, 1944. A 4th, a B-24 E of Costesti Romania on 6 June, 1944. A 5th, a B-24 (HSS) at Buschuk Bulgaria on 11 June, 1944. A 6th, a B-24 (HSS) W of Bucharest on 28 June, 1944. A 7th, same day, a P-51, same location. Officially, this 7th was recorded by OKL as his 4th. This leads me to believe that 3 of these victories might belong to another Franke in I/JG-53. A 5th (also referred to as his 4th per OKL, 2nd time!), a P-51 E of Budesti-Bucharest on 18 August, 1944.
