T/o Aalborg. Op: Training.

Apparently Pilot Unteroffizier Kurt Landrock attempted a emergency landing a couple of hundred meters north of the railway station in Støvring at 11:15 hours as the Ju 88 skidded across the fields, broke through a quickset hedge and bust into flames in a field belonging to Veterinarian Hansen 200 metres east of the railroad line.

The crew of four was thrown clear of the wreck and was found lying dead in the field.
Pilot Unteroffizier Kurt Landrock, Navigator Obergefreiter Gerhard Schön, Wop Unteroffizier Karl Piatz and Air gunner Unteroffizier Sönke Sönnichsen were all laid to rest in Frederikshavn cemetery on 6/1 1943.

The JU 88A-5 was a 95% loss.
