    The 26th November 1944 was a busy day for KG 51. Starting from 0936 hrs, five Schwärme of four Me 262s each took off from Hopsten in a wide-ranging operation, each carrying two SD 250s bombs against enemy artillery positions at Roermond, Duerne, Nijmegen and Helmond.

    The pilot, Unteroffizier Horst Sanio, flew his aircraft low from the SW to the NE, just missing some treetops and made a very heavy crash landing in a field, stopping in front of a farmhouse. One of the bombs, which he was carrying, went through the front wall of this farmhouse and was found in one of the barns at the back of this farmhouse. Sanio was brought to this farmhouse with severe injuries and was taken to the hospital at Almelo. On November 30, 1944, Sanio died of his wounds and was buried at Almelo and later at Ysselsteyn(L) were he now rests in grave BE-4-79.
