It looks like Adolf Galland as Kommodore of JG 26 late 1940.

Thank you, von thoma.
This ace shot down 9 four engine bombers in one night. Who was he, what was his aircraft, and where and when did he achieve this feat?

Edited on 15 Dec: After reading a more detailed report it seems that 3 of the kills attributed to his aircraft were were actually accomplished by his radio operator after the Captain had a gun jam problem.

hi,

Heinz-Wolfgang Schnaufer shot down 9 bombers apparently in one DAY (February 21, 1945), but in two consecutive nights, thus it's not him.

No, pb not Schnaufer. I'm thinking of a Nachtjäger.

However, FYI after reading a more detailed report it seems that 3 of the kills attributed to his aircraft were were actually accomplished by his radio operator after the Captain had a gun jam problem.

Hello,

Would it be Martin Becker?

Becker's crowning achievement, and a Nachtjagd record, was on 14–15 March 1945, when he claimed 8 Lancasters of 5 Group and a Halifax, alternatively one B-17 Flying Fortress III (HB802 "BU-O") from No. 214 (SD) Squadron flying an attack on Lützkendorf. The B-17 was shot down at 23.37 approximately 3 miles (4.8 km) southeast of Baiersbronn and may have also been brought down by light flak. This tally included three shot down by crewman Lt. Karl-Ludwig Johanssen with his MG-131 rearward facing machine gun. This achievement earned both Becker and Johanssen a reference in the daily Wehrmachtbericht.

hi,

with reference to your addition, Tazman is, of course, correct with "Martin Becker".

However,
Maxschnauzer wrote:No, pb not Schnaufer. I'm thinking of a Nachtjäger.

I would like to point out that Schnaufer was a night fighter, as well. My "within a day" just meant "in 24 hours"
