T/o ? Op: ?

At 16:20 hours the aircraft was heard circling over Vinderup. It was snowing and getting dark when it at 16:25 hours attempted a landing in a field belonging to Farmer Christian Jensen of Bjert near Vinderup after having flown low over the snow clad field a couple of times.

Due to the soggy ground it stood on its nose and damaged both propellers as well as the front before it fell back down to normal position. The crew of three officers and one Unteroffizier were unharmed.
The commander of the aircraft contacted the local Wehrmacht detachment in Vinderup and had them guard the aircraft. Afterwards he reported to Fliegerhorst Grove and Einsatzhafen Rom.
On the next day the aircraft was towed across the field and dismantled and loaded on a train at Vinderup station.
