FW 190A belly landed near Jyllarup 25/2 1944.

The aircraft belonged to 10./ JG 11 and was coded ?
T/o Grove. Op: Attack on American fortresses.

Unteroffizier Bertram was scrambled from Fliegerhorst Grove to attack American fortress formations passing over Denmark. At 12:30 he belly landed his aircraft in a field belonging to Farmer Karl Bertelsen.
The FW 190 approached the field from the east and after touch down skidded along until it stopped a few metres short of a windbreak.

It is not known why Bertram belly landed. He walked a short distance over to the nearby farm of Johanne and Marius Schultz where he borrowed the telephone and called for assistance. He was served coffee and cake while he was waiting Wehrmacht personnel to arrive.
A Luftwaffe team eventually arrived and dismantled the aircraft and transported it to Aalborg.
The aircraft was less than 50% damaged.
