Fw 189 A-1 of 1.(H) 32. Norway

This aircraft made a forced landing at island Senja, northern-Norway.
I am trying to find date of landing and names of crew.

Some say it happened in 1944. Spring 1945 is also mentioned. Both airmen were rescued. The aircraft was later salvaged and brought ashore at Rødsand. Possible code: V7+1H

TIA Kjell

Re: Fw 189 A-1 of 1.(H) 32. Norway

Hi, Kjell

1.(H)/32 sustained losses on the following dates of 1944:

22.03.1944 can be ruled out - aircraft damaged 10 - 50% on an operational sortie observed by the enemy
26.03.1944 can be ruled out - loss reason not compatible - bombed on the ground

15.04.1944 can be ruled out - three crew members killed

12.05.1944 can be ruled out - three crew members killed
28.05.1944 possible - 1 crew member killed - 2 wounded - Matti? Any NVM on this one?

03.07.1944 distinct possibility - loss on a non-operational sortie - no injuries to crew

05.09.1944 possible - one crew member wounded
22.09.1944 distinct possibility - loss on a non-combat flight - no injuries to crew
25.09.1944 can be ruled out - shot down by Flak - but no crew injuries

09.10.1944 can be ruled out - 2 aircraft destroyed on the ground by ground forces
13.10.1944 2 aircraft - at least one can be ruled out as it was destroyed by Infantry fire. The other is a possibility
22.10.1944
23.10.1944 can be ruled out - shot down in combat - 1 crew member killed (Bf 109?)

02.11.1944 possible but unlikely - total loss on an operational sortie - 1 crew member wounded
08.11.1944 possible but unlikely - damaged on an operational sortie
12.11.1944 can be ruled out - aircraft destroyed on the ground by ground forces

04.12.1944 possible but unlikely - damaged on an operational sortie
05.12.1944 possible but unlikely - damaged on an operational sortie

Hope this can narrow yor search somewhat. Haven't had time to go through war diaries etc yet

Regards,
Andreas B

It must be in 1945, when this unit was located at Bardufoss, Before October 1944 it was in the East.
