Ju 52 crash at Aalborg, 13 April 1940

According to the Luftwaffe loss list in the North available there http://www.rafandluftwaffe.info/luftwaffe1.html, on 13 April 1940 a Ju 52 of KGzbV 1 force-landed on Aalborg West airfield after engine failure and was destroyed at 100%. The pilot and two other crew were killed, while the only survivor was wounded. No name is given.

There is nothing about this loss on Soren Flensted's website "Airwar over Denmark", so I wonder if there was such a loss on this date.

Can someone confirm it, and give more details ?

Thanks in advance

Laurent

I am far from sure but i once heard or read that the survivor Fw. A. Klingels in fact was the Beobachter on the plane.
For years i have searched for a picture of the He 59, D - AXYA, who rescued him.
I hope you can use the picture of the pilot.
Best wishes,

Christian
