Luftwaffenkommando Südost (gliders)
The Luftwaffe General Quartermaster Aircraft Loss Records show 3 miscellaneous entries for July – August 1943. No further information has been found, so it is not known if these 3 Staffeln operated under a Stab or independently, how long they remained in the Balkans or what happened to them.

12.7.43: Go 242 glider crash landed at Salonika-Mega airfield in Greece, 30%.
