02/28/2015. Remarks by Johan Visschedijk: "This propaganda photo was taken by photographer Pilz of KB-Kp. Lw.5 (Kriegsberichterkompanie der Luftwaffe, War Reporters Company of the Air Force). It shows a Junkers Ju 88 A-1 and its crew of I./KG 51 "Edelweiß" (I Gruppe of Kampfgeschwader 51, First Group of Battle Wing 51) before take-off.
Edelweiß is the Europe mountain flower "Leontopodium Alpinum" which was the logo of the battle wing KG 51, shown on the nose of the aircraft."
