Ju 88C-6 serial number 360144 crashed east of Jerslev 13/9
The aircraft belonged to 10./ NJG 3 and was coded D5+KX.
T/o Aalborg. Op: Calibration flight for radar.
While flying over the sea the right hand engine caught fire and Pilot Leutnant
Helmut Alberti turned back towards land. Engineer Gefreiter Otto Kramm however
bailed out before the Ju 88 reached the coast and landed in the sea and died.
The Wop bailed out near Jerslev and was unharmed.
The Ju 88 crashed at Vester Hjulskov in a field belonging to Farmer A. Thøgersen
at 03:15 hours.
Apparently Alberti had bailed out too late at too low an
altitude as his dead body was found near the wreckage.
Leutnant Helmut Alberti was laid to rest in Frederikshavn cemetery on 18/9 1943.
On 15/9 the body of Otto Kramm was found, and he too was laid to rest in
Frederikshavn on 19/9 1943.
