In his memoirs, he mentions "my enemy flights to the East during January and February (45)". Re: his Bienenstock assignment, he states "we came to a special command with a secret name, Operation Bienenstock. We were equipped with explosives, silent MP's and pistols.We waited impatiently for the hour that should finally strike again for us". H referred to "Operation Bienentock" being "an insane enterprise". Within days, he was ordered to "no longer fly your mission south, fly north". He threw the grenades and explosive charges out of his Stieglitz, and began the flight north, but not without making a pass over the Chiemsee square, tipping his wing to say goodbye to his old aviation comrade. He landed in a field and managed to get some clothes and a bicycle from a farmer, and peddled home to Neuenkirchen. He passed away in 1986 and was buried in Hocherberg.

(Added by Pietrzak Youngs)
Johannes Wiese (7 May 1915 – 16 August 1991) was a German World War II fighter ace who served in the Luftwaffe from 1935 until the end of World War II on 8 May 1945. After the war in 1956 he joined the Bundeswehr and attained the rank of Oberstleutnant . He retired on 30 November 1970. His most successful day was 5 July 1943 when he shot down twelve enemy aircraft in one mission. [1 ] Johannes Wiese was officially credited with 133 victories claimed in 480 combat missions. Additionally he had 25 more unconfirmed claims. [1 ] Among his claims are 70 Il-2 Stormoviks . Soviet fighter pilots therefore greatly respected Wiese, and referred to him as the "Lion of Kuban ." On December 1, 1944, Wiese became Geschwaderkommodore of the JG 77 . Only three weeks later he was severely injured when, following ejection at an altitude of more than 9000 meters after combat with British Spitfires, his parachute ruptured 80 meters above ground. He spent the rest of the winter in hospital, and was replaced as commander by Erich Leie . He surrendered to U.S. forces at the end of the war but was released from captivity only weeks later. However, Wiese spent over four years in Soviet POW camps from September 1945 onward, having been denounced by German communists. (Source: Wikipedia)
