Bf 109D serial number 3146 crashed at Kragelund 27/5 1941.
The aircraft belonged to Jagdgruppe Drontheim (Jagdfl. Schule 3) and was coded ?
T/o Grove. Op:Training.
A group of aircrafts were flying over Kragelund at approximately 09:00 hours
when one of these left the group and descended towards ground. It appeared as if
it intended to make an emergency landing on the road between Sinding and
Kragelund as the engine did not run well.
One of the wings however touched a tree that stood in the garden belonging to
Farmer Thorvald Davidsen and turned towards the house.
It hit the house end and continued into the house after the wings had been torn
off. Police and rescue people was called and it was found that Pilot
Obergefreiter Heinz Müller was badly wounded but still alive and conscious.
The lower part of his body was trapped beneath the dash board and the engine and
these had to be shifted to retrieve the pilot.
He was given morphine and taken to the ambulance. He did however die en route to
the hospital in Silkeborg.
He was laid to rest in Aalborg cemetery.
It should be noted that in RL 2 III/770 the aircraft is reported to have landed
near Göteborg in Sweden.
