LaGG-5 shot down by Hs 129 0n 19 March 1944

I am researching the Flugbuch of Oberfeldwebel Franz Birnbaum of 10.(Pz.)/SG 9 and on 19th March 1944 he records a flight out of Proskurov between 09:40 and 10:10 when he shot down in flames a LaGG-5.

Does anyone have any further information on this claim?

For background, Birnbaum records being attacked by LaGG-5s on two occasions in the previous days. Between July 1943 and April 1944 Birnbaum claimed 11 tanks destroyed (10 T-34s and 1 'assault gun of the new type', which from the date I think would be an SU-85), in addition to several trucks and horse-drawn vehicles.

Any help on the LaGG claim would be much appreciated.
