Theodor Nordmann's 1111th Feindflug

Gentlemen,

Does anyone know when Major Nordmann flew this milestone mission?
Its celebration was documented with at least 3 photos.
Also, when exactly he was promoted to Major?

Thanks,
Maciej

Re: Theodor Nordmann's 1111th Feindflug

Hans Schuh wrote a bio based on Nordmann's Feldpostbriefe which appeared in Luftwaffen Revue. The 1111th sortie was a date in August 44. I thought the promotion to Mjr. was posthumous, but looking at one of Schuh's images he's captioned it as " Major Nordmann nach Rückkehr von seinem 1111. Feindflug.."

FWIW two views of Nordmann returning from the milestone sortie here

Thanks, I found this information in the web, but was curious about the original source. The other two photos of Nordmann taken at the same occasion seem to show Major's shoulder straps.
