On Joe Baugher's website, the second one is listed as shot down by AAA near "Butback". I guess this should read "Butzbach", south of Giessen.
Hope this helps
Robert

Hope the following may be of help

www.luftwaffe.cz/clade.html Entry 25 no details of aircraft except B-26
www.luftwaffe.cz/02-1945.pdf

You may already be aware of the following it would appear that
43-34410 belonged to 596 BS X2-D
42-107745 belonged to 450 BS ER-V
42-107792 belonged to 432 BS

.
43-34410 (397th BG) believed shot down by Bf 109s 22/2/45
42-107745 (450th BS) shot down by AAA near Butback 22/2/45
42-107792 (432nd BS) shot down over Germany 22/2/45

Kind regards

Ross
