The unreliable Breguet 691 n°57 was in the process of being reformed. Sergeant BELOGROTE asked to make a last test, and asked that the machine gunner be replaced by sandbags. Sergeant BELOGROTE was the only victim of the accident.
At the time of his burial, his comrades flew over the Church and the cemetery for a last homage...
