Narrative:
The Ju 88 A-4 WNr 3915 GC+UP of I./KG 3 was heavily damaged on 18 July 1943 in an air battle over the Eastern Front. She was brought back to the Junkers factory in Dessau, Germany, by train for repairs. Several months later the repairs were over and the bomber was sent to a school, as heavily repaired bombers were not sent back to frontline units. On 3 February 1944 a crew of 1./Flugzeugüberführungsgruppe Mitte was ordered to ferry it from the factory to a school, probably in Aigen. But on the way the Ju 88 crashed without survivors at around 1500 hrs near Eging am See.

Crew (all killed):
Obfw Ernst Vossbeck (pilot)
