The Russain hydroplane was shooting without misses. The left hull was half destroyed. One wing console got shot holes. The front bay turned into a sieve. That poor Mircha - a gunner of the head machine gun was killed. But the most distressing thing happened after the explosion somewhere upstairs near the motor. While being in another steep turn the gondolla lost something heavy. After this we were unable to continue the flight. Our commander suceeded to glide down and alight on water having a heel on the left side. Having done a circulation the boat at last stopped. Having dramatically sunk into the water with huge bow pitch she stopped upright in two tens metres from the beach.
