Bf 109 serial number 315 emergency landed near Viborg 24/6 1941.

The aircraft belonged to Jagdgruppe Drontheim (Jagdfl. Schule 3) and was coded ?
T/o Grove. Op: Training.

The aircraft made an emergency landing at 10:45 hours in a rye field belonging to Smallholder Harry Peter Albrectsen and was 70% damaged. It hit the ground near Rinde stream and skidded over the field for about 40 metres until it came to a halt.
The pilot was unharmed.
Local police arrived and soon after an German aircraft landed in a nearby field belonging to Farmer Otto Fogde.
The pilots asked for the use of a telephone to call the Ortskommandantur in Viborg to have the crashed aircraft guarded. The police took the flyers to Reverend Kemp at Brandstrup vicarage and afterwards back to the aircrafts.

After having asked the police to take report of what had happened and to guard the Bf 109 until the German guard arrived, the flyers entered the latest arrived aircraft and took off.
