On February 5, 1919, during a battle with the Bolsheviks, the Lithuanians captured a Red Army Sopwith "1 1/2 Strutter," which became Lithuania's first combat plane, though it was not used until August 3, 1921. On September 21, 1928, during a flight avei Kaunas, the plane's engine caught fire. The pilot, Captain Leonardas Peseckas (1899-1976) and Lieutenant Kazys Šimkus (1905-1968) climbed out onto the wings, when Peseckas continuously shifted his weight about in order to maintain the plane's balance.

In recognition of such a brave feat the President of the Republic of Lithuania bestowed the rank of major on L. Peseckas.
