FW 44 Werk nummer 2974 crashed near Aarhus 16/4-1941.

The aircraft belonged to Sch./Fl.Ausb.Rgt.42 and was coded ?
T/o Avnø   OP: Training flight

Two aircrafts were practizing “Ziel-Landeflug” when they at 18:18 hours collided when flying at 1200 meters. Both crashed to the ground and both pilots died.

Gefreiter Rudolf Kühn suffered from severe burns and his body was taken to Copenhagen where he was laid to rest in Bispebjerg cemetery on 19/4 at 11:00 hrs. The ceremony took place from the Eastern chapel.

NOTE: According to RL 2 III/770 this crash is recorded as in Neustadt-Gleve, but as the pilots rest in Denmark that is highly unlikely.
