Hello edNorth
The German unit has finished its flight in a field and then capsized. According to the police report, there was nobody on the plane.
Or was it he was trying to land on the ground in Conches Ouche? The crew he parachuted? This base was used by the bombers.
Thank you anyway for your information

Hello. I have some interesting information regarding this topic. Not so long ago I've bought photoalbum which belonged to Oblt.z.S. Otto Metzner. He started his career on Linienschiff `SCHLESIEN`. Here is his Äquatortaufschein award doc.

He was an observer in Ku.Fl.Gr. 806. You can see him on the group photo together with their commander Obstlt Wolfgang von Wild. Also some photos with He111.
