Bf 109G emergency landed near Marslev 23/5 1943.

The aircraft belonged to ? and was coded ?H+XV. It was coded 5 on the engine cowling
T/o Værløse Op: ?

At 10:00 hours the Bf 109 that was marked with 5 on the engine cowling landed wheels down in a turnips field next to Marslev landing ground due to lack of fuel. The aircraft as well as the pilot was unharmed.

The pilot walked over to the nearby train station and used the telephone to call Fliegerhorst Værløse for fuel and to arrange for a guard to watch the aircraft.
On this Sunday the landing ground was used by a group of young aircraft model enthusiasts and it is believed to be the reason for not landing on the landing ground.
While waiting for the fuel the pilot allowed the boys to get up on the wings of the Bf 109 to have a look at the cockpit.

A JU 52 arrived later in the afternoon with fuel and landed on the landing ground. After having refuelled the Bf 109 both aircrafts took of again.
