War episode:

On 21 April 1945, the JRS-79B1 no. 224 flown by lt. av. Eusebie Hladiuc was part of a formation 9 aircraft of the 1st Bomber Group, which had to bomb the railway station and marshalling yards at Uhersky-Brod. Around Trenchin, the airplane experienced some engine problems and the on-board commander, cpt. av. Lucian Gheorghiu (observer), decided to turn back to base. But they didn't get there. Lt. av. Hladiuc spotted a small airfield at Banovce and attempted to land the bomber. The crash, however, was very violent and resulted in the death of serg. Petre Udatu (machine-gunner/mechanic) and the injury of the rest of the crew. Fortunately for them a VVS medical unit was stationed on that airfield and they were rescued immediately.

He is presently living in Bucharest.
