Operation Barbarossa 22.6.41 - KG 3 and KG 53

Good day, everyone!

Looking for KG 3 and KG 53 crews/aircraft that made first attacks on Soviet airfields (about 3 am, coinciding with beginning of Wehrmacht ground assault).

I understand that about 150 crews, from KG 2, KG 3 and KG 53 were selected to attack various airfields, in Kette strength, with fragmentation and incendiary bombs - in preparation for the main, larger air attacks to follow.

I did some searching of previous postings, but did not find anything.

Thanks in advance if any crew/aircraft information is available.
