Bf 109T-2 serial number 7745 emergency landed near Nykøbing 18/11 1943.


The aircraft belonged to I./ JG 11 and was coded RB+OR. (A Danish report says that it was marked “24”)
T/o Lister Op: Feindflug.


The BF 109T took off from Lister to attack the American Liberators that had attacked Kjeller in Norway.
It emergency landed in a field belonging to the farm “Frydsbrønd” 2 kilometres west of Nykøbing Mors at 13:40 hours due to lack of Fuel.
It approached the farm from west and flew low over the farm houses, turned north and back west and touched down in a field just north of the farm buildings.
It cut down a number of fence poles when skidding along. When it came to a halt the pilot was seen to climb out of the aircraft, sit down on the wing and smoke a cigarette.

The aircraft had been 50% damaged while the pilot was unharmed.

Soldiers from the local German garrison soon arrived an guarded the Bf 109T.
Two days later a team arrived and took the aircraft apart for transportation. Apparently someone messed up because a shot was fired when they were dismantling the wings.
The aircraft was then loaded on a heavy wagon and taken away.
During these days the guards and the Luftwaffe personnel was billeted at “Frydsbrønd” farm.
