Uffz. Max Gehringer, a fighter pilot from Normandy

Hello!
This time, I would like to ask about a fighter pilot from a Jagdstaffel.
Uffz. Max Gehringer was killed Juli 17. 1944 in Normandy.
I cannot find him in the JG 26 book by Caldwell, so i do not think, he was with this unit.
I would like to know more about the circumstances of this pilot's death, if possible, aircraft, codes etc. etc.
Thank You in advance
Christian
PS. I know, i often asks questions about these aircrew members and i sincerely hope, You don't get tired of my questions. I have many books with loss lists, but not all of them, therefore my questioning.

Hi Christian,

Uffz. Max Gehringer was from 10. / JG 11 and had Fw-190 A-8 Gelbe 4 (Yellow 4) 731 414 at his disposal on 17th July 1944. Exact location of loss in Normandie is unknown, he is listed as missing.

Hello Christian,
Like said Matthias, in the book of JB Frappé, you don't have the location of the crash but JB Frappé situated combat between Vire and Carentan. 3 others pilots of the JG 11 crashed this same day: UFFZ Helmut Ried (2/JG11), uffz Erich Kerntke and Uffz Heinz Schuch (1/JG11). Heinz Schuch was the only one alive. All the pilots were "MIA". But Uffz Max Gehringer is "dead" and not "MIA" because you can find him in this website: http://www.volksbund.de/graebersuche in the cemetery of Champigny St André.
Nota: In the excellent book of JB Frappé, you have a witness of Heinz Schuch of this day.
Fredo
