Bf 110 werk nummer 1423 crashed at Fliegerhorst Værløse 11/10 1940

The aircraft belonged to Erg.Zerst. Gr. Vaerloese and was coded Weisse 1.
T/o Flh. Værløse. Op: Training.

Pilot Oberleutnant Otto Ballhorn and radio operator Gefreiter Hans Siewert took off in a Bf 110 and crashed in a bog belonging to Christian Hansen near Søndersø lake at Fliegerhorst Værløse. Two young cows were sprayed by the burning petrol.

Ballhorn and Siewert both died and were laid to rest in Bispebjerg cemetery in København on 14/10-1940. Their remains were transferred to Vestre cemetery in København in March 1944.

Note: It is possibel that the werk nummer is 1823 and not 1423 as this is difficult to read on the picture.
