Bf 110 ? ditched in Roskilde Fjord 24/5 1940.
The aircraft is believed to have belonged to ErgZGr Vaerloese and was coded ?
T/o ? Op: ?
The Bf 110 crashed into Roskilde Fjord about 1,8 kilometers north of “Kronprins
Frederiks” bridge near Frederikssund where it sank in 6 meters of water.
Pilot Leutnant Karl Kaiser left the aircraft by parachute, but this did not
deploy properly and Kaiser died when he hit the water surface. What happened to
the other crew member is not known.
Apparent the body of Leutnant Karl Kaiser was brought back to Germany
as he do not rest in Denmark.
For some reason the Luftwaffe did not recover the aircraft
and in 1951 permission to do so was granted Mr. Chr. Petersen of Frederikssund
by the Danish Ministry of Defence.
