Taken from the book "German emergency landings 1939-1945"

Early in the morning a german aircraft observed passing over southern Helsingborg.Five warningshots and sixteen direct fires was shot from different AA stations in Helsingborg.The aircraft was hit in the tail and crasched at Klappe and from the wreckage a shaken danish fugutive named Per Hiul crawled out.He had served as a flightmechanic at Kastrup,where Flugzeugfuhrerschule B34 was.
The aircraft was of an elder type that have been origianlly deliverd to Lufthansa with the
regnr D-ACBS,named Augsburg.In contrary to other versions of this aircraft this one was
equipped with BMW 132H engines.In 1940 the Luftwaffe took it over and since then used as a training aircraft

In cover from the darkness,Per Hiul could sneak into the aircraft when the engines was warming up.Before the german mechanics knew what happend,Hiul jumped out and removed the chocks and then rolled out and started to take off.
At a low altitude over the sea he set his direction towards Sweden.When the aircraft was
shot the cables to the tail was damaged and thus he lost the control of the aircraft.In a
last desperate try to save himself from the unavoidable crash into the ground,he crawled
all the way back as far he could into the tailsection.That saved him,cause he was relative unharmed when the military took him into custody.

To have been in a slightly dive the aircraft straightend itself out and fell flat into the
ground from 25 meters.Hiul stayed in Sweden until the war ended and Denmarks liberation.During the lasing war months he helped fugutive to cross the strait from Denmark.He later perished in a drowning accident.
The aircraft was later sold as scrap while a few minor parts was shipped back to German
authority in Denmark.In excange a few American aviators could return to their unit in
England.
