  • German Luftwaffe group II./KG 27 flew a supply operation for the German troops trapped in Kholm, Russia. Three He 111 aircraft failed to return; one of which was forced to land within the pocket due to heavy damage. The crew of the downed He 111 aircraft removed the aircraft's radio and used it to help direct further supply runs. ww2dbase [Rzhev-Vyazma Offensive and the Demyansk Pocket | Kholm, Novgorod | CPC]
