Two engined German aircraft emergency landed south of Aarhus 22/3 1945.

The aircraft belonged to ? and was coded ?
T/o ?  Op: ?

A German aircraft had emergency landed at Farmer Karl Jensen`s farm near Slet south of Aarhus and was guarded by German soldiers that had set up guards room in the poultry house. The guards were enjoying the fine weather when they were held up by four resistance fighters and forced to move towards the aircraft in front of the Danes.

One of the Danes had an accident with his pistol that went off. The Germans thought that he was shooting at them and fought for their lives. The two Germans guarding the plane heard the shot and saw the fighting and opened fire against the Danes. Two of the Danes were killed and two managed to get away. One German soldier was wounded rather badly. After having been taken to the local Danish doctor he was taken by “Zonen” rescue service to Aarhus for treatment.

A memorial for the Danes is found at the site.
