And Juchnow in German = Yukhnov in English (in Kalouga area, which was liberated in March 1942)

Ah, very interesting! I assume that even with an 80% loss...that both pilots survived the incident?

Hi Mike,

your assumption is correct, the two crew members survived this emergency landing, the aircraft was 80% damaged (= the aircraft was unusable).
