Bf 109 serial number 1371 crashed near Borregaard 15/2
The aircraft belonged to Lz. Amt. Erding and was coded ?
T/o ? Op: ?
The Bf 109 crashed at 18:30 hours in a field belonging to Farmer Skov Hansen of
Borregaard and was a 100% loss. The pilot had bailed out and landed safe in a
plantation west of Borregaard.
He walked over to Overlade and spent the night in the house of the Parish
executive officer. Next morning he walked to Borregaard to watch his aircraft.
He met the Busk family and spent the next days at their house while he slept at
the Overlade hotel.
He became very fond of the two year old son of the family named Willy and gave
him his own talisman. It was a broche formed like a small dog.
It took several days before German soldiers arrived to collect the wreckage and
to bring the pilot to Aalborg.
Note: It is not clear what the name of the pilot was. In a report from “Statens
Civile Luftværn” it is recorded as Feldwebel Gehard Aasenskohø while Willy Busk
claims that it is Feldwebel Gerhardt Roschinsky.
Note: This could be an aircraft of Jagdgruppe Losigheit as is claimed by some
sources but it is not known for sure, and it crashed 3 hours later than those
from that group that landed on the ice near Løgstør.
