Oops yes you are correct, or at least partially correct. In the history of II/KGr zbv I/II Gruppe "Geschichte einer Transportfliegergruppe im zweiten weltkrieg"
it states that Kleye was indeed a paratrooper and the aircraft was 1Z+DP, however the courageous pilot was Feldwebel Hellmuth Grünert so I have no idea where the name Meyer came from.
