Ju 88C-6 serial number 360318 emergency landed near Viborg 2/9 1943.

The aircraft belonged to Stab. IV./ NJG 3 and was coded D5+IW.
T/o Grove. Op: Training.

The crew were on conversion flight training when the pilot suffered from “Höhenkrankheit” which can probably best be translated as lack of oxygen and at approximately 18:00 hours belly landed the Ju 88 in a turnips field belonging to Tage Sloth of Borre.
Engineer Unteroffizier Hubert Groten was injured during the landing and was taken to Lazarett Viborg for treatment by Luftwaffe personnel arriving from Fliegerhorst Grove.

The JU 88 that was 25% damaged was dismantled over the next 4-5 days and taken back to Fliegerhorst Grove.
