Default Luft PAB and Document

Rumor has it, that the PAB and document are a creation of the winkler workshop in his basement. I was once told that his LDO number was 666 - but now he only produces unmarked versions.....

Both documents are forgeries as well.

Hi Jelle, I am not a document expert so can you give some details of why you believe these docs are fakes?

Hi guys,

Complete fantasy for me as well, thanks for posting this up for discussion Jeff.

Someone took an original AWS LGAB and converted it to a LWPAB using a common Frank & Reif tank badge, you can see where the two pieces don't match up on the reverse.

I would also question the documents, not my area of expertise but the fact that none of them have fold creases in them is a big red flag IMO. Sometimes you see one or two docs without creases, but all 3 from one grouping is suspecious IMO.

Tom

I can’t judge the physical awards but I wouldn’t want the EK documents.
