Bf 109G-14 serial number 464243 crashed near Mariager
The aircraft belonged to JG 5 and was coded: No code issued.
T/o Værløse. Op: Transfer flight.
Three Bf 109G`s were on a transfer flight from Fliegerhorst Værløse to
Fliegerhorst Stavanger in Norway when northern Denmark became covered by fog.
The Bf 109G is believed to have tried to find a place to land when it at 15:30
hrs hit he ground at a fairly flat angle between “Bakkegaarden“ farm and
Skødstrup skov forest. It bounced up again and came down again a couple of
hundred meters from the farm and exploded. Germans that was billeted in
Skødstrup village hall was informed by Svend Domino of „Bakkegaarden“ and soon
arrived on the crash site.
The Bf 109 was a 100% loss and Pilot Gefreiter Alfons Kolbe died. He was laid to
rest in Frederikshavn cemetery on 22/1 1945.
Note: The communication within the German forces was not very good. Since German
troops were seen on the site, Danish officials did not report the crash.
Neither did the German soldiers and the aircraft was later on the day listet as
missing by Fluko Aalborg. Fluko asked the Danes if they had knowledge about it
and thus was a report forwarded by Danish officials at 19:40 hrs.
