Focke Wulf Fw 190 identity

Those two photos were taken by an american soldier in March 1945 in the Remagen area.

The aircraft was shot down 10th March 1945.

Any Information about the aircraft, unit and fate of the Pilot?

Thanks for your help.

Shouldn't there have been some photos with your post, or a link?

The numbering style points to Nachtschlachtgruppe 20. They flew in March night attacks on the Remagen bridge.

I make the W.Nr. 160662 (the first digit is very faint), so it could be a G-3, of which NSGr. 20 still had some. As interesting though is that Ju 87, and a possible second one, under the trees in the background. You can just see the exhaust flame suppressor, so it's from either NSGr. 1 or 2 (if we definitely are in Western Germany). I can't see a wing cannon, so it should be a D-3. IIRC these units never shared a base with NSGr. 20 but that doesn't preclude an Fw 190 landing at one of their airfields od course.
