Luftwaffe missions to by-past bases in France 44/45

Does anyone have information about the missions to the by-past French ports and Channel Islands. How many French enclaves had airports for the planes?, Which Luftwaffe group did these missiions come from. How often? How bad were the losses? Any books on the subject?

Hi,
I seem to recall that TG 30 was involved in these operation, try a Google search on Luftwaffe "TG30".

Suppy flights were mainly carried out by I/TG30 in addition elements of KG53 and KG55 were briefly involved. A lot of the missions appear as airdrops (Dunkirk, Cherbourg, Calais, La Rochelle, and also Aachen) while the Channel islands were supplied by airlandings and St. Nazaire had both drops and landings (according to POW reports).

The HW5 series Ultra files at the National Archives are full of information about these flights. There are also (in AIR40) several interrogation reports from crews of TG 30 shot down on these missions.
