Ju 87R-2 serial number 6130 crashed near Yding 1/5 1941.


The aircraft belonged to IV(St)/ LG 1 and was coded ?
T/o ? Op: ?


It was between 15:30-16:00 hours when a formation of Ju 87`s were seen over Yding.
 
The aircraft pulled out of the formation and attempted a landing in a short field. It landed a little long and the landing gear caught up in a small dyke that separated that field from the next field. The aircraft overturned and ended up lying on its back with the cockpit over a small stream.
The crew were unharmed and got out, and when they had been spotted from the aircrafts circling the field, the formation continued.

A team from Fliegerplatz Rye arrived to retrieve the Ju 87. They got it back on its wheels and placed the tail wheel on the body of a truck and started pulling it to Fliegerplatz Rye on its main wheels. After a while, the main gear collapsed.
Eventually the Ju 87 was 70% damaged.
