Bf 109G-14 serial number 464199 emergency landed near
Thisted 30/1 1945.
The aircraft belonged to Flzg. Leitst. Vaerloese and was coded ?
T/o Værløse. Op: Transfer flight.
Two aircraft`s was a transfer flight from Fliegerhorst Værløse to Fliegerhorst
Stavanger in Norway when one suffered a technical failure.
It made a emergency landing at Nors 8 kilometers north of Thisted at 15:10 hrs
after having dropped its external fuel tank. It landed wheels up in a field and
skidded through the garden of Hanstholmvej no. 11 and through the hedge into the
garden of Hanstholmvej no. 109 where it hit between two big threes that caught
the wings of the Bf 109 and made it stop.
The pilot was unharmed. It was his lucky day. Had the aircraft continued for
meters it would have ended up in a small house where Masterpainter Pedersen had
his workshop with a lot of highly flameable liquids.
The other aircraft made a normal landing southeast of Nors, apparently to see if
his comrade was all right. It took off again on the next day.
