The aircraft belonged to Luftwaffe in Peenemünde.
T/o ?. Op: Testing.


The V-1 is believed to have been fired from a He 111 and should probably have crashed into the Baltic Sea.
At 15:45 hrs at was seen flying from a south southwesterly direction towards north northeast. It hit some trees between the farms Stamperegaard and Kofoedgaard and crashed in a field, jumped back up and continued for another 400 metres before it hit the ground and exploded. It disintegrated and parts of it set fire to a barn belonging to Stamperegaard. Apparently there had been no explosives in the V 1 and the explosion had been caused by the fuel.

The German Inselkommandant was informed and colleted the wreckage.
