T/o Flp. Kastrup. Op: Training.


The Ju 88`s of Flugzeug Führer Schule B 34 were on a night flight exercise when a thunderstorm came up. They were all called back by the control and ordered to land emidiately.

Ju 88A-12 serial number 0192 with the crew of Instructor Pilot Unteroffizier Rudolf Bökenkamp, Student Wop Gefreiter Josef Grundmann and Student Pilot Kurt Louis had just landed and braked rather hard when Ju 88A-7 serial number 3027 piloted by Student Pilot Konrad (Conny) Rehm landed at 02:30 hrs.

Ju 88 3027 hit JU 0192 from behind and ended up on top of it with ist left propeller cutting the fuselage of 0192 up behind Student Pilot Kurt Louis who was flying from the left seat.

The landing gear of 0192 collapsed and both aircrafts skidded along on the runway. Quite lucky the petrol did not catch fire and the crew were helped out of the wreckage by the fire brigade.

JU 88A-7 serial number 3027 was 35% damaged.

The accident was deemed to be the fault of Konrad Rehm and he was taken to the Kriegsgericht in Neuruppin where he was sentenced to two years in Torgau.
He served 4 month before he was „pardoned“ for medical reasons and sent to Panzer-Division „Adolf Hitler“ on the eastern front where he should serve for a period of time..
He lost his life after a few weeks.
It is not known where he rest.
