War episode:

In October 1943, slt. av. Constantin Dragomir proved to be a lucky pilot. On 6 October, he was part of a formation of 12 Stukas, which attacked the Novo-Lubliovka village. They did not encounter any VVS fighters, but the Soviet AAA in the area started to fire and his Ju-87D no. 25 was hit and he had to make a forced landing south of Mikhailovka, the airplane being written off afterwards. The following day, flying on no. 33, slt. av. Dragomir, together with another 8 Stukas under the leadership of slt. av. Ovidiu Cercel, bombed the Giresevka village at 1000 hours. Three Romanian aircraft were damaged by the AAA, among which the one of slt. av .Dragomir, who eventually managed to save it.

Current whereabouts unknown.
