14 October 1944 on eastern front

I have two questions:

1) A Soviet ace was lost this day, Kapitan Pavel Konstantinovich Babaylov of 163 IAP. All I have about him is: An eskadrilya commander, he was seen to score his 33rd victory but was then himself shot down and killed. He became posthumously a Hero of the Soviet Unon on 23 February 1945.

I would like to know more about the loss of this pilot.

2) On this day Libau was bombed and the crew of U-717 lost 2 killed and 3 wounded. This raid was very probably flown by Soviet aircraft (no trace in US or British records) and I would like to know the Soviet side of the story.

Thanks in advance
