On 28 November 1942, during a bombing mission, the JRS-79B no. 117, which was under
the command of slt. av. Sixtus Maxim was attacked by several VVS fighters. It went down in
the Naumov-Petrovka area. Only four of the five crew members managed to bailout in time.
They were taken prisoners by nearby Soviet troops. A long and very hard period of detention
followed. Sixtus Maxim returned to Romania in 1949.
