Hi Fangıo,
Looks like Hartmut Schairer, Stuka pilot.

Hi John!
Do you have any pic of Schairer to compare? If you don´t, it´s ok, don´t worry.
Best,

New finds.
The signature on 1481b.jpg is the reverse of 1481a.jpg.

Yes definitely Hehmeyer. Both Scherzer and Kai Winkler had variation of a portrait and it matched the above.

post-1017.jpg : This Luftwaffe-Officer was Leutnant Hans-Joachim Valet, 18.02.18 - 03.12.44.

Rare pic of an eastern front Ju 52-pilot. He was shot down by allieed fighters as an Me262 Jetbomber-Pilot!
