In an RCAF Press Release dated May 1945: "F/L Cook said, 'I reported this bi-plane - it looked as if it was heading for Denmark and went down on him. When I fired, I passed him and I saw him crash into the deck. He broke in two. I didn't see anyone get out Funny, with a big round nose, it looked like a motored glider.' This was in connection to a fight near Lubeck when two enemy observation aircraft were sighted and later destroyed -- along with three railway coaches, two motor vehicles and other coaches and trucks were damaged."
