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

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

Two FW 44 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 Martin Witt suffered from a broken scull 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.
