FW 190A-8 serial number 170050 emergency landed on the island of Ærø 9/4 1944.

The aircraft belonged to 1./JG 1 and was coded Weisse 14.
T/o ?. Op: Interception of American bombers.

The engine of the FW 190 operated by Leutnant Heinz-Günther Lück was damaged by return fire from the American bombers and it was found necessary to make an emergency landing on the island of Ørø.

Lück was followed down by Weisse 3 and both fighters belly landed near Stokkeby about 3 kilometres south of Ærøskøbing after having circled the area a couple of times.

Weisse 14 broke through a small dike in the field and Lück hit his head on the dashboard. He was taken to the hospital in Ærøskøbing where he was treated for concussion.

Over the next days the aircraft was dismantled and taken away.
