Operation Weserübung.


On 9/4 1940 the Wehrmacht launched the invasion of Denmark and Norway known as operation “Weserübung”. They needed the Danish airfields to be able to reach Norway by aeroplane. The airfields in Jylland were taken without bloodshed while at Værløse airfield near København a Danish Fokker 3R was claimed by Hauptman Wolfgang Falck of Stab I./ZG 76.

The Luftwaffe lost a number of aircrafts due to accidents and due to weather. Apart from those below, a number of aircrafts landed in fields due to lack of fuel, but were able to take off again after having been re fuelled.

There are known to have landed Ju 52`s in places like Silkeborg, Hygum near Harboør, Vust, Kørup on the island of Fyn and near Vust.

It is not known to which squadrons they belonged and they are not discussed below.
