Bf 110C-7 serial number 3513 crashed near Skodborg 27/2 1942.


The aircraft belonged to II./ NJG 3 and was coded ?
T/o Schleswig. Op: Feindflug.


Leutnant Tham experienced vertigo during flight and he and Wop Unteroffizier Pastor bailed out and landed safely in their parachutes.
One landed in a field belonging to Smallholder Andreas Lunding of Jelsskov while the other landed near Skodborg. The flyers were taken to the headquarter of “Der Standordälteste Hadersleben” in Haderslev and returned to their base at Schleswig at noon.

The Bf 110 crashed at 00:05 in a field belonging to Farmer Jacob Jensen of Skudstrup Mark near Skodborg about 25 kilometres northwest of Haderslev and was a 100% loss.


Note: Some sources give the crash date as 26/2. As the Bf 110 according to local Danish reports crashed just after midnight the right date must be 27/2 1942.
