Bf 109D serial number 3097 crashed near Fliegerhorst Grove 11/9 1942.


The aircraft belonged to 2./ Jagdgruppe Drontheim (Jagdfl. Schule 3) and was coded
T/o Grove. Op: Training.


The Bf 109 crashed in the gunnery area northwest of Fliegerhorst Grove due to pilot error and was a 100% loss.

Student pilot Leutnant Gerhard Schnell died and was laid to rest in Frederikshavn cemetery on 14/9 1942.

Note: From studies at the crash site and based on witness testimony it seems as if he forgot to level out and flew into the ground.
