JG26 Bf109G-6 Questions

1) Looking for the details of Major Klaus Mietusch's (III./JG 26) Bf109G-6/U4 "Black 25", W. Nr. 441646. He was killed in this aircraft on September 17, 1944.

I would like to know if the Black 25 had the tall vertical tail and Erla Haube canopy, which equipped most of the III. Gruppe aircraft of the JG 26 in this period.

Though I have not found any so far, photos of Black 25 are very welcome.

2) Trying to find the W. Nr. of the Bf109G-6 "Black 22", which was constantly used by Stab III./JG 26 in mid 1944. It was photographed in March-April 1944 several times at Lille-Nord. I have found the below given two data on Caldwell's JG26 Vol. 2 book:

On August 10, 1944, Siegfried Gohre (12./ JG26) was killed while flying at Bf109G-6 "Black 22" W. Nr. 165239.

On September 25, 1944, Joachim Zeller (Stab III./ JG 26) was killed while flying at Bf109G-6 "Black 22" W. Nr. 780851*.

* Accoring to Prien & Rodeike, the 780851 must be a G-14, not G-6.

I would appreciate any additional info you may provide.

Thanks.
