The bomber pilot (3280924) might be Johannes Geismann.

In case it has not been already ID'd, the officer on the right in rktofluft on page 84 looks very like Reinhold Eckardt.

RE: pilots from KG 53

that would make it a photo in early/mid june 44 or a bit later - II. Gruppe / KG 53 "Legion Condor" : Gruppen-Kommandeur Herbert Wittmann with his Staffelkapitäne, resp. Staffelführer. (4./5./6. Staffel)
Dietrich Kornblum, Staffelfhr. 4./KG 53 , RK: 09.06.1944 - Heinz Zöllner, Staffelkptn. 6./KG 53 , RK: 05.04.1944 - Herbert Wittmann, Kdr. II./KG 53 - Johann Dreher, appointed Staffelführer 5./KG 53 in june 44 ? , RK: 05.04.1944 as Flugzeugfhr. i. d. 5./KG 53

Agree to Wittmann, Zöllner. Kornblum also. Last unsureness about Dreher.
