FW 190 A-8 serial number 738307 belly landed at Risby Mark 5/5-1945.

The aircraft belonged to 4./ SG 54 and was coded Weisse 12+-.
T/o Riga area.  Op: Escape from the Russians.

The aircraft belly landed at Risby Mark near Baarse on the island of Sjælland just before noon. The pilot opened a hatch on the left hand side of the fuselage to allow a man to get out from where he had stayed during the flight.

Reverend Tjelum of Baarse had seen the belly landing and approached the Germans together with his son. They pilot suffered from a broken nose and bruises to the head while the passenger suffered from bruises to the body.

They told Tjelum that they were heading for Hamburg but had run low on fuel and had thus landed. They did not know that the Germans in Northern Europe had surrendered to the British only the same morning.

The priest administrated first aid and arranged for them to be taken by ambulance to the hospital in Næstved for treatment.

The aircraft was afterwards guarded by the local resistance and was moved to the harbour in Præstø on 8/5.
