The two man crew performed a successful crash landing in mountainous terrain west of Bjørnevatn. The wreckage was brought down to the museum in Bodø in the 90's.

This Arado was probably one of 29 Arados which in the afternoon attacked the advancing Russian forces south of Tårnet road.

Right: This is all that was left at the site in 2008.
