"Da 1. gruppe i meget lav højde indfløj over Godsbanegården kl. 11.20 ramte Wing Commander Kleboes fly et tårn med projektører, blev slået ud af kurs og styrtede
ned ved Den Franske Skole på Frederiksberg. Røgudviklingen fra denne nedstyrtning fik 7-8 fly fra de to efterfølgende grupper til at bombe Frederiksberg i stedet for Shellhuset, der på dette tidspunkt stod i lys lue efter 1. gruppes nøjagtige angreb.

Katastrofen på Frederiksberg kostede 124 danskere livet, heraf 87 børn i Den Franske Skole. Desuden blev 156 mennesker såret, heraf også mange børn.
I Shellhusets tagetage, hvor der var indrettet celler til fangne danske modstandsfolk, omkom 8 personer.

4 Mosquito-fly og 2 Mustang-jagere gik tabt i forbindelse med operationen." (FAF) Se Mosquito fotos og Google Map 14 Mosquitoes DK og Mustang fotos.

"When 1. group at a very low altitude flew in over the goods yard at 11.20 Wing Commander Kleboe´s plane hit a tower with floodlight projectors, got off course and
crashed at The French School on Frederiksberg. The smoke from this crash made 7-8 planes from the next two groups bomb Frederiksberg instead of the Shell
Building, which at this time had burst into flames after the precise attack by 1. group.

The disaster on Frederiksberg cost the lives of 124 Danes, of which 87 children in the French School. In addition 156 people were wounded, many of them kids.
In the top floor of the Shell Building with cells for captured Danish members of the resistance 8 people perished.

4 Mosquito-bombers and 2 Mustang-fighters were lost in connection with the operation." (FAF)
