FW 56 serial number 1587 crashed at Troldhede 28/4 1941.

The aircraft is believed to have belonged to JFS 3 and to be coded KG+NM.
T/o Grove Op: Flight to Borris ?

Five aircrafts were seen coming from the north when one of these experienced engine problems and turned while looking for a place to land. Apparently he was not looking forward as he hit the roof of the church tower. The wings got stuck in the tower and the fuselage fell to the ground at the churchyard with the pilot inside it.

People from the nearby train station rushed to the fuselage and helped the pilot to get out of it. He was bleeding from the head and was helped to the station. An ambulance was called and it arrived before the Germans did and took the pilot to a hospital for treatment.
