I don't think that these aircraft were operated by 2./NAGr. 6, which wasn't in Bavaria, nor do the double digits fit with the known markings (solid and single-digit) carried by 1./NAG 1. What there was at Lechfeld was a conversion Kommando for Me 262 reconnaissance pilots, apparently part of III./EJG 2's training programme. There's a lot of uncertainty about what was going on but what I know is here: file:///Users/nickbeale/Documents/Nick's%20stuff/Website/gbweb/recon/262/report.html
