Natten til den 21. april 1945 fløj Liberator B 24 GR8 KH410 på anti u-bådspatrulje til Kattegat. 
Ved midnat styrtede flyet imidlertid ned i den vestlige del af Rold Skov her. Hele besætningen omkom.
Den tyske værnemagt begravede ligene i hemmelighed søndag den 22. april 1945 umiddelbart vest for nedstyrtningsstedet. Se monumentet "Flyverstenen" på nedstyrtningsstedet.

On the night before 21 April 1945 Liberator B 24 GRD KH410 flew on an anti submarine patrol to Kattegat. However, at midnight the plane crashed into the western part of Rold Forest here. All of the
crew perished. The Wehrmacht buried the bodies secretly on Sunday, 22 April, 1945, just west of the
crash site. See the monument "The Aviator Stone"  at the crash site.
