Ju W34 (See) serial number 1397 crash landed near Trustrup
The aircraft belonged to Luft Dienst Kommando 64 and was coded ?.
T/o Aalborg. Op: Postal flight to Hamburg.
The Ju W34(See) suffered from a broken petrol pipe and in the afternoon at
approximately 16:00 hours the aircraft was seen approaching a field belonging to
Lyngdalgaard farm from the north preparing for a landing.
Just before touch down
Pilot Unteroffizier Schloder noticed some electrical wirer that crossed the
field. He pulled the aircraft up and just got over the wires. When the aircraft
had passed the wires and was nearing the field again he nearly hit a man who was
harrowing the field. Schloder turned sharply to one side and hit the field on
one float that was torn off. When he finally landed in the field he hit his head
on the front window.
The Ju W34 was 40% damaged.
Together with Schloder were two more flyers. They borrowed a telephone on the
next farm south of Lyngdalgaard and called Luftwaffe. Two teams arrived.
of young soldiers stayed near the aircraft which they took apart. They were only
seen on the farm when they wanted to buy milk. The other team were elderly men,
who billeted in the horse stable. Apparently they were supposed to guard the
aircraft. After a few days the young team pulled the aircraft parts across the
fields to the nearest road where the parts were loaded on trucks and taken to Grenå.
