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 Control and ordered to land
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-12 serial number 0192 was 80 % damaged and Gefreiter Josef Grundmann and
Unteroffizier Rudolf Bökenkamp were taken to the Revier to be treated for cuts
and bruises by the Stabsartz .
Grundmann stayed there untill 27/8 while Bökenkamp was taken to
Luftwaffe-Lazarett Kopenhagen where he would stay until 29/8.
