The Bv 138A was later dragged ashore by soldiers of 2.Gebirgsdivision.

Flyet ble liggende opp ned i sjøen ca.60m fra land. Det er ingenting igjen av flyet på stedet nå, bortsett fra flyets midtre motor som fortsatt ligger begravet på leirbunnen i Alterbukta.

The reconnaissance flying boat was shot down by British AA-fire at Dalselv. The A/C was hit in the tail by the third shot. They had to make an emergency landing into the Ranfjord. The left wing touched the water and the flying boat went upside down. Five of the crew managed to climb up on the wing and swam ashore. The pilot, Uffz.Helmuth Schuster, probably drowned inside the aircraft. Shortly after one of the crew members was shot in a fight with Norwegian soldiers, the rest became POWs.
