    Certainly looks like a 96, and isn't that Molders?

    The picture appears in Reschke's book on JG301/302. The guy in the picture is Generalleutnant Dietrich Peltz. The aircraft in the pic is indeed an Ar96 and the one Reschke and Fw Blum flew from Stendal to Ehrfurt on 8 April 1945 to collect two Ta152H-1s. These are the ones some believe to be actually two Ta152C's but the book mentions H's in several places.

    Beat me to it! He is unmistakeable.
    I don't have Reschke's book to hand but I'm guessing this picture was taken late in the war as he's visiting a fighter unit. Pelz always looks young for a General :)
    Cheers

    They are 'Unteroffiziere' (if I'm reading their ranks correctly from the rather hazy photo) standing close to a General ;)

    Cheers

    the pilots were not too keen/kind to him, this is in 45 when visiting III. gruppe and Peltz hopped into black 3 Ta 152H-0, it is a series of cine film.

    I've been and dug out Reshke's book. It was Black 13 that Peltz flew during his visit to Stendal according to the book.

    Cheers

    ah no it is black 3. Reschke has thought to have flown a black 13 Ta but in reality it was black 3. I see the statement on pg 214. smae A/C on the previous page when Peltz was reviewing the Ta's of III. gruppe and Fw Doras of Ii. gruppe and their personell, the gruppen did not want him anywhere close to their units in reality

    Wayne am holding my own for the time being, the horizontal bar on the Arado I believe is red and no numbers or codes visible. need to check further as the bar might be green of the Geschwader stab.
