Seeking picture(s) of a pilot from SKG10

Hi, I am posting this in the hope that someone may be able to help. I haven been trying to track down pictures of a pilot from II.SKG10, Oblt. Kurt Klahn who flew his final mission on the night of 16/17th April 1943 in FW190 A5-2697. I have pictures of his crashed aircraft from Chris Goss's book, but have been unable to find any of him to date.
Does anyone have any photos of SKG10 or II.SKG10 with unidentified pilots still outstanding or any ideas as to sources that I could use to try and locate such pictures? I'd also like to try and find a picture of his aircraft if possible prior to it crashing, again, not sure how I'd go about this?

Any help/suggestions re the above would be much appreciated,

Guy

I have PM'd you but I never had any photos of him whilst photos of early SKG 10 night ops FW 190s are like hens teeth. If they existed, they would be in my books!

Re: Seeking picture(s) of a pilot from SKG10

thanks to Chris for kindly forwarding his pictures of Klahn's FW190 post-crash.....does anyone else have any pictures at all of I/SKG10 or II/SKg10 pilots/groups of pilots between Dec 1942 and April 1943?

Failing that, he also served in I/KG 40 Jan 1941 - May 1942 and June-Nov 1942 for the HE 177 test flight if anyone has any pics from these units?

Any help much appreciated!
