Ju 88A-4 serial number 2045 crashed near Brønderslev 31/8 1943.


The aircraft belonged to 10./ KG 30 and was coded 4D+GU.
T/o Aalborg West. Op: Training.


The Ju 88 crashed at Kraghede about five kilometres southeast of Brønderslev at 17:00 hours when it unintentionally touched the ground and was 90% damaged.
 
The Wop was unharmed while Pilot Unteruffizier Rudi Mann, Navigator Karl Rethorst and Air gunner Arthur Seefelder all suffered from damage to the head and one of them a broken finger.

The aircraft “landed” in a field belonging to a farm at Wittenborgvej road 20. The crew walked over to the local grocery store at Kraghedevej 215 and borrowed the phone from Grocer Anker Jensen to call back to base.
A call was also made for Doctor Jensen of Sulsted who soon arrived and treated the flyers.

After a while personnel arrived from Aalborg to guard the plane and the flyers were taken to Krankenrevier Fliegerhorst Aalborg West.
The wreck was removed after about a week.
