Cowley, Oxford Aircraft Dump 1940

As is so often the case I search for something else and find other items of interest, such as a collection of photos showing a UK aircraft dump at Cowley.

Can anyone identify an individual identity of any Luftwaffe plane from all the junk?

Once you view a photo in this link scroll down then either backwards or forwards with the blue arrow.

I believe the 109s are Mölders (JG 51) & Beyer (JG 26)

I'd guess that Paul Nash took these photos as studies for his painting Totes Meer (Dead Sea).
