Flyet blev over Københavns Havn ramt i den ene motor af antiluftskyts. Piloten meddelte over radioen, at han ville prøve at nå frem til svensk område. Det passerede
den svenske ø Hven her midt i Øresund i lav højde og med kraftig røg fra venstre vinge. Måske har piloten regnet det for dansk område. Han fløj over øen uden at
lande og styrtede i Øresund omkring her.

De to flyvere kravlede ud på en vinge, men kraftig blæst gjorde det umuligt for øboerne at komme til hjælp. Flyet sank kort efter. De to flyvere forsvandt og er aldrig
fundet. (Kilde: FT 88-44-49)

Over Copenhagen Harbour the plane was hit by flak in an engine. Over the radio the pilot said that he would try to reach Swedish territory. It passed the Swedish
island of Hven here in the middle of the Øresund at a very low altitude and with heavy smoke from the left wing. Maybe the pilot considered it to be Danish territory.
He flew over the island without landing and crashed into the Sound about here.

The two airmen crawled out on a wing, but heavy wind made it impossible for residents of the island to help. The plane sank after a short while. The two airmen
disappeared and have never been found. (Source: FT 88-44-49)
