Junkers JU-87 Stuka Relic

We believe this component to be the inner tip of the aircraft's flap (Innere Verstellklappe), position closest to the fuselage. The relic has been painted with the aircraft details confirming it is from Junkers JU-87 R-4 with code LI+FW (6234) III/I STG 5 and dated 24.4.42. We have identified with aircraft crashing due to engine failure over Murmansk. Lt. Rudolf Newmann survived while the other crew member Uffz Kurt Graef was reported M.I.A. This relic is in as recovered condition with traces of the original paint. It is scarce to find an identifiable crash relic with provenance from the famous Stuka. Measures: 17" (43cm).
