Bf 109G-6 serial number 161156 crashed near Kramnitse on the island of Lolland 9/4 1944.


The aircraft belonged to 7./JG 54 and was coded 6 Weisse
T/o Lüneburg ?. Op: Interception of American bombers.


At 15:40 hrs the Bf 109 crashed into the ground in a field belonging to Lilleholm farm north of Kramnitse approximately 12 kilometres southeast of Nakskov killing Pilot Feldwebel Rudolf Krehan.

The aircraft burst into flames and was a 100 % loss.

On 10/4 the body of Feldwebel Rudolf Krehan was taken to København where it was laid to rest in København Vestre cemetery on 15/4. The ceremony took place from the eastern chapel at 10:00 hrs.

The location of the crash is by the Germans recorded as Loskowland/Insel Lolland. No such location exist and it is believed that Loskowland is in fact Lilleskovland which is not far from Kramnitze.
