Operation - 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.

Bordschütze Unteroffizier Hubert Groten was injured during the landing and was taken to Lazarett Viborg for treatment by Luftwaffe personnel arriving from Fliegerhorst Grove.

The damage was assessed at 25%; the Junkers was dismantled over the next 4-5 days and was taken back to Fliegerhorst Grove.
