German fighter landed at Flintinge 9/5-1945.

The aircraft belonged to ? and was coded ?
T/o Norway. Op: Flight to Germany.

The aircraft bellylanded in a field belonging to Fuglsang Farm due to lack og fuel. The pilot was unharmed. Farmer Christian Rasmussen arrived and the pilot surrendered to him. When the pilot realized that he was landed in Denmark he handed out cigarettes and chocolate to the people who had come to watch. The pilot was taken to Flintinge station where he was handed over to members of the resistance movement.

At Flintinge Farm they were not happy. Not so much because of the damage the aircraft had done to their field. But mainly because of the 3-400 onlookers who showed up and damaged the field severely by walking on the new sprouts coming up.
