I think the unknown transportgeschwader RKT with the Narvik shield (post-1017.jpg) could be Max Hengst , Ritterkreuz 09.06.1944 as a Oberfeldwebel in 2./TG 3.

It's not Narvik, but Demjansk shield.

I think the two pictures of the pilot wearing the KC show Matthias Schwegler, awarded Knights Cross 18 December 1941 as Oblt., Staffelkpt. i. d. I./K.G. 51.

Three photos of Luftwaffe pilots. The main question: is this the same man on photos Meyer1.jpg and Meyer2.jpg, and what's his name: Bruno Meyer or Hans-Adolf Meyer?
Bruno Meyer , 10.(S)/Lehr-Geschw 2 / AHF id

Müncheberg got his oak leaves as Oberleutnant, but the pics shows an Hauptmann.

Thanks, Ingo

I see what you mean. As far as I recall, the identification of this photo as Muncheberg came from the NAFA website.
