Den blev ramt af flak placeret på Nyboder Skole her og styrtede ned i Fælledparken her ved Øster Alle
37, 2100 København Ø. F/Lt David Arthur Drew nåede at sige lidt til en dansk brandmand, inden han
døde. Maskinen blev totalt ødelagt, og to træer blev skadet så meget, at de for nogle år siden blev
erstattet af de to unge træer, der ses på billedet ved
MUS HK460.

The plane was hit by flak from Nyboder Skole here and it crashed into the Fælledparken here at
Øster Alle 37, DK-2100 København Ø. F/Lt David Arthur Drew managed to talk a little to a Danish fireman before he died. The plane was totally destroyed and some trees were damaged so much that some years ago they were replaced by the two young trees in the picture at
MUS HK460.
