Flugbuch entry - help deciphering handwriting

Hi,

I am wondering if anyone can help to decipher a handwritten comment in a Flugbuch (see attached)

The first word is "Himmelbett -" but I cannot fathom the rest...

Thanks

Rod

Possibly: Himmelbett - daneben gegangen. Probably meaning, if this is a Nachtjagd Flugbuch, the Himmelbett radar didn't work, didn't lead him right...

Greetings Hans K

Hi Hans,

thank you for your reply. In the context of the flight (the crew concerned landed much earlier than other crews from the same Gruppe), I think you are right.

Thanks

Rod
