Den 11. juli 1942 styrtede MOS DK299 ned ved Rejsby Å, måske omkring her.
"Ved aftenstid den 11. juli 1942 blev Flensborg angrebet af »Mosquito« fly. Det var meningen, at 6 fly skulle angribe, men det synes, som om nogle angreb Tønder i stedet for og bombede et tog mellem Døstrup og Skærbæk. I alt 6 danske blev dræbt og 16 såret ved disse hændelser.

Et af de mod Flensborg udsendte fly, »Mosquito« DK 299, nedstyrtede (evt. nødlandede) ved Rejsby Å.
De 2 ombordværende omkom. Flyverne blev begravet den 16. juli 1942." (FAF)

On 11 July 1942 MOS DK299 crashed at Rejsby Å (Stream), maybe about here.

"In the evening of 11 July 1942 Flensburg was attacked by Mosquitoes.
6 planes were to attack, but it seems that instead some of them attacked Tønder and bombed a train between Døstrup and Skærbæk. Altogether 6 Danes were killed and 16 injured in these events.

One of the planes targeting Flensburg, »Mosquito« DK 299, crashed at Rejsby Å (Stream) - or made a hard forced landing. The 2 crew members on board perished.
The airmen were buried on 16 July 1942." (FAF)
