The aircraft belonged to ? and was coded ?
T/o Germany Op: Transfer flight.


The Bf 109 made a wheels down landing in a field belonging to Børglum Monastery at approximately 13:30 hours. It had circled the area a few times before it touched down. The aircraft was undamaged and the pilot was unharmed. The pilot walked up to the monastery and used the phone to call Luftwaffe. He told the locals that he was on a flight from Germany to the island of Sjælland and had lost orientation and believed that he had landed in Sweden.

Soldiers from the local garrison in Løkken guarded the aircraft until personnel from Aalborg arrived in the evening. They removed the wings and loaded both the wings and the fuselage un a truck and took it away.
