Narrative:
After a long Feindflug (operational sortie) against the RAF Bomber Command Friedrichshafen raid, pilot Leutnant Erich Jung landed at Saint-Dizier. On landing at the bombed-out runway, the port undercarriage hit a bomb crater causing the aircraft to ground loop and completely burn out. The pilot and his crew escaped unscathed. That same night, they travelled by transport aircraft to Fliegerhorst Deelen in the Netherlands and from there by rail back to Kassel.
