Losses of KG 51 on 22.06.41

Reading some materials concerning losses of KG 51 (15-19 Ju 88 A-5s), I think (maybe wrong), that this unit mostly had operated over Tarnopol, Stanislavov area, not so far on the north, and had not done bombing attaks on airfields around Lvov.

Mostly the unit's losses are conected with the attack on Kurovitce airfiled (base of 164. IAP, 66. SzAP of. 15. SAD near Lvov), but there were no attacks done by KG 51, but the last one did them more on the south, as on territory of airfieled 64. IAD fighter regiments.

I think, that KG 51 losses could be more atributed to the fighter attacks of 12. IAP and 149. IAP of 64. IAD, then to above 1-st units.

There is a report of 64. IAD, where are mentioned about 12 airmen captured on 22.06.41 (so it could be captured some crews of KG 51).

Maybe someone have some detail about targets of KG 51 on the morning of 22.06.41, then could be clear: Lvov area or Stanislavov, Tarnopol?
