    The Sonderkommando Blaich (English: Special detail Blaich) was a German special unit consisting of one Heinkel He 111 medium bomber that raided Free French–controlled Fort Lamy (present-day N'Djamena) in the Chad region of French Equatorial Africa in January 1942.
    The raid against the target located 1,250 mi (2,010 km) from the German-Italian bases in North Africa was a success but, on its return flight, the German plane ran out of fuel and had to make an emergency landing; both crew and plane were rescued a week later. More on this raid here: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Sonderkommando_Blaich.
