Bf 109 emergency landed at Kalvslund Moor 24/2 1944.
The aircraft belonged to ? and was coded ?
T/o ?. Op: Attack on American bombers.
An American formation of Fortresses was heading west when a Bf 109 climbed to
attack the rearmost aircraft from below.
The BF 109 then dived and belly landed
in Kalvslund moor 9 kilometres northeast of Ribe due to the engine being damaged
by bullets. Also the fuselage had been hit several times. The pilot fired a
flare to attract attention.
A couple of young boys saw the landing and rode over
to the aircraft on their bicycles. The pilot was pretty friendly and allowed
them to have a look at the cockpit. Soon soldiers from the “Barbara Lager” in Ribe arrived and told the boys to go away.
