10 April 1945, Burg bei Magdeburg : which Me 262s' unit was involved ?

Hello,

On 10th April 1945, at about 2:00 P.M., a B-17s formation which had to bomb the airdrome of Burg bei Magdeburg, was attacked by Me 262s before reaching the target. Two 100th BG's B-17s belonging to this formation, were shot down by the Me 262s.

Which Me 262s' unit was involved in this attack ? and which German pilots claimed these victories ?

Thank you very much in advance.

Bonjour BABIN,
I fully recommend the reading of "The Me 262 Combat Diary" by Foreman and Harvey. I am not with my own book, but maybe JG 7 and JV 44 were involved...Perhaps someone who can have access to it can help. Anyway...it is a good book.
