Bf 109 emergency landed at Kalvslund Moor 24/2 1944.


The aircraft belonged to ? and was coded ?
T/o ?. Op: Attack on American bombers.


An American formation of Fortresses was heading west when a Bf 109 climbed to attack the rearmost aircraft from below.
The BF 109 then dived and belly landed in Kalvslund moor 9 kilometres northeast of Ribe due to the engine being damaged by bullets. Also the fuselage had been hit several times. The pilot fired a flare to attract attention.
A couple of young boys saw the landing and rode over to the aircraft on their bicycles. The pilot was pretty friendly and allowed them to have a look at the cockpit. Soon soldiers from the “Barbara Lager” in Ribe arrived and told the boys to go away.
