Greece was attacked by the German forces and Heinz was involved with the battle to pierce the modern Metaxas line on the border with Bulgaria. When Greece was invaded Heinz flew various missions against ground and shipping targets.
Visit to Bulgarian airfield
April 1941: Heinz's kette (3 aircraft) visited a Bulgarian airfield. They were very well received by the Bulgarians, here Heinz is standing in the middle surrounded by Bulgarian officers.
