The aircraft took off from Prague-Rusin and probably belonged to a Lehrgeschwader/ Flugzeugführerschule. The crew bailed out for unknown reason. The ac continued flying unmanned until it hit a mountain in the vicinity of Mo i Rana, northern Norway.

We have visited this site twice, but haven't been able to find any plates to identify the aircraft. Most of the aircraft was removed in 1960-65

Nothing seem to have been removed from the hillside since our last visit in 2001
