"Kette"(four planes) were flying in a right turn from the fjord towards
the Moksnes farm. When passing Moksnes at 09.30, two of the airplanes collided
at low altitude. People working on the potatofield could see a rudder fell off
and the the a/c lost control and crashed into the left wing tip of Fw.Jürgen
Böttger's a/c. Uffz.Porcher's aircraft plunged nose first into the potato
field 80 meters west of the people working on the field. The aircraft did not
explode, but there was a lot of smoke. German forces from Revland and Moksneslia
entered the scene whith in minutes, but it was too late to save the pilot. The
other damaged Messerschmitt managed to get back to Værnes airfield. The
body of the pilot and the aircraft was removed from the field later in the evening.
