In pre-war Germany the Luftwaffe held different
inspections for foreign military personnel, the French and other foreign officers would review aircraft as they flew over. Once out of sight they would return again flying over the field giving the impression the Luftwaffe had more aircraft.

Aircraft in background are Messerschmitt Bf 109C-1 of JG132 Richthofen one of the first Jagdgeschwader to receive the new fighter.
Fighters are in the camouflage scheme of Black-Green with Light-Blue
