Ju 88A-4 serial number 5867 emergency landed near Arentsminde 24/5 1943.

The aircraft belonged to 12./ KG 30 and was coded 59
T/o Aalborg West. Op: Training.

The Ju 88 made an emergency landing due to engine failure in a field belonging to Small holder Erik Kristensen of Skovengene near Arentsminde west of Fliegerhorst Aalborg West at 19:30 hours.

It approached from the north and touched down in the northern end of the field and skidded along for about 80 metres before it came to a halt.
The aircraft was 15% damaged and the crew was unharmed.

On 4/6 the aircraft had been dismantled and removed and Erik Kristensen claimed 260,00 kroner as compensation for the damaged field and late July he was granted the money by the Luftwaffe.

It should be noted that the compensation was actually paid to the Small holder by the local County.
