Bf 110E-1 serial number 3431 belly landed near Tuen 7/8 1942.


The aircraft belonged to 8./ NJG 3 and was coded ?
T/o ? Op: Feindflug.


Two Bf 110`s was seen heading north over the dried out Gaardbo lake when it started smoking from the left hand engine on one of the aircrafts. It turned west and at 10:35 hours belly landed in a field belonging to Store Gøgsig farm near Tuen.
A couple of hundred metres before landing it dropped two drop tanks.
After landing the crew of three left the aircraft in a hurry before it started burning and the ammunition started exploding.

One flyer stayed by the aircraft while the two others walked over to Tuen where they borrowed a telephone at Tuengaard farm and called Fliegerplatz Frederikshavn and informed about what had happened.

They then walked back to the now burned out aircraft and soon started selling the petrol left in the drop tanks to the local people.
 
Later in the day 10 or 12 soldiers arrived to guard the remains of the aircraft. They billeted at Store Gøgsig farm where they stayed for about three weeks until the remains of the Bf 110 had been removed.
