German aircraft crash landed near Vinderup 1/12 1942.
The aircraft belonged to ? and was coded ?
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.
