Hauptmann Kurt Capesius was an Austrian who joined the Luftwaffe in May 1938. He underwent initial training at the Luftwaffe academy at Berlin-Gatow, followed by spells at a training school at Celle and an instrument school at Wien. Initially, he flew as a fighter pilot with I./JG 134 and then II./JG 54, also based at Wien, but in April 1940 he transferred to 9./KG 51. Capesius took part in missions flying the Jun88 over the British Isles, the Balkans and the Soviet Union. Shortly after the invasion of the USSR, however, he was appointed Staffelkapitän of 10./KG 51, where he was responsible for training replacement crews. Capesius later returned to 9. Staffel and flew many sorties over the Black Sea and Stalingrad. He was awarded the Knight’s Cross on 30 November 1944
