On 22 April 1943, slt. av. Ioan Dicezare engaged a Soviet bomber formation and shot down one A-20 Boston, which fell behind the Axis lines. He then returned to the airfield and took the group's liaison airplane: a Bf-108 Taifun. He landed near the crash site and found only two survivors: the pilot and the observer. He took them prisoners using his 9 mm Beretta pistol. The Soviet crew later gave valuable information about the VVS airfields in the area.
