"329 fly angreb Berlin og på grund af vanskelige vejrforhold og dårlig markering af målet mislykkedes angrebet. 21 fly gik tabt. Under indflyvningen til Berlin blev JB842 angrebet
af en tysk natjager, og nær den nordtyske kyst eksploderede flyet i luften, hvorved alle besætningsmedlemmer blev dræbt." (FT 86-88-8)
