A Dutch newspaper of 29 June 1937 reports that three training a/c had collided over Hamburg-Fuhlsbüttel airfield and had crashed with all three pilots killed.

For June 1937 there is only one collision with several aircraft mentioned in the reports.
Totally 4 Fw 44 were involved: D-EMBA, D-EFPO, D-EBRU and another one with no registration given. Cause is collision in the air during formation flying
(Kettenflug). 3 were dead, the 4th survived severe wounded.


Regards
Dirk
