Late war fighter encounters

On 5 May 1945 Jürgen Pfau escaped to Norway together with more than a 100 Luftwaffe aircraft. In the early morning hours of 8 May Pfau made his last sortie with his Ju 88G-6 Z6+IH of K.G.66. He took off from Stavanger-Sola airfield at 06.47, possibly together with one or more aircraft of his unit. They set course over Skagerrak where the encountered four Hellcat fighters. Pfaus aircraft was hit by 15 bullets and made a landing at Lister airfield in damaged condition at 07.55. Can anyone provide more details of this, possibly, last air combat over or off Norwgian territory.
