I want to recommend the book
Ernst Obermaier "Die Ritterkreuzträger der Luftwaffe 1939 - 1945", Band I, Jagdflieger, Verlag Dieter Hoffmann, Mainz, 1989.

BTW: According to this source Hager had 99 sorties (97 at night) and 48 victories. In the night 21./22.02.1945 6 (six) victories.
NJG 1, Do 217 and He 219

Johannes was one of the very few of NJG 1's personell outside of the I. gruppe to fly the He 219. He also tested and flew the Ju 88G-6.

Hi Erich
Many thanks for your reply.
NJG1 was in Belgium, didn't it! Can you confirm Johannes Hager in Florennes and Sint Truiden?
At which date?
There's a lot of "crash monument" in belgium with dates aircrafts lost. Many of these are due to Johannes Hager.
Where can I find pictures of this pilot?
