Circumstances:
The accident occurred during a private VFR flight from EDXR (Rendsburg-Schachtholm) to Endelave (EKEL). When arriving overhead EKEL, the pilot made a visual inspection of the airstrip conditions. Upon a low approach at a shallow angle to runway 29 at EKEL, the pilot on short final reduced engine power and initiated the flare. Approximately 10 meters in front of the beginning of runway 29, the aircraft landed in a wheat field, and the main landing gear touched down at and collided with an upslope roadside next to a road crossing perpendicularly to the beginning of runway 29. When colliding with the upslope roadside, the left main landing gear collapsed. The aircraft started veering uncontrollably to the left and ran off the side of the airstrip. In the grass parking area next to the airstrip, the left wing of the aircraft collided with the nose landing gear of a parked aircraft. The aircraft continued veering to the left, impacted with a tree and a farm building, and came to rest. After impact with the tree and the farm building, the aircraft caught an explosive fire. Witnesses observing the landing and the impact with the tree and the farm building initiated a rescue mission. The aircraft was totally destroyed by a post crash fire and all four occupants were injured.
Probable cause:
An undershoot landing and touchdown at an upslope roadside next to a road crossing perpendicularly to the beginning of runway 29 resulted in a left main landing gear collapse. The aircraft uncontrollably veered to the left, ran off the side of the airstrip, collided with a parked aircraft, and impacted with a tree and a farm building. The aircraft caught an explosive fire. The resolute actions by witnesses and the local community in combination with an effective rescue mission were the difference between fatal and serious injuries.

Circumstances:
Aircraft was engaged in a bird control mission over the center of Denmark and left Billund Airport in the afternoon. On final approach to Roskilde runway 03, pilot abandoned the descent and started a go around due to the presence of a slower aircraft. While climbing, aircraft stalled and crashed near runway 03. Both occupants were killed.
Probable cause:
Final approach and go around procedure were non-standard. Accident was caused by a stall during the climb and the distance between the aircraft and the ground was insufficient to complete a recovery. Weather conditions were not considered as a contributory factor.

En route, while cruising in formation with three other similar aircraft at an altitude of 22,000 feet, the aircraft suffered an engine failure. Unable to maintain the prescribed altitude in the formation, the captain decided to leave the formation and while joining another one, the aircraft was attacked by enemy fire. Eight crew members bailed out when the aircraft went out of control and crashed in an open field located near Lolland, Denmark. The two last crew members were killed while another occupant was killed as his parachute did not open.

Circumstances:
While flying some 80 km south of Copenhagen, the crew informed ATC about a fire on board and reduced his altitude. Due to a sudden hazardous situation, the captain attempted to ditch the aircraft into the sea, off the Vordingborg coast. The aircraft hit the water surface and before it came to rest, the copilot jump into the water. He was slightly injured and quickly rescued while the aircraft sunk rapidly. All five other occupants were killed, among them two employees from the Standard Oil Company based in New Jersey.
Probable cause:
Fuel vapor ignited either in its cabin or the space in its port wing, necessitating a forced landing. The blaze was attributed to the leakage of gasoline from the overflow boxes, which in turn must have resulted from the overfilling of its fuel tanks. However, the cause of the ignition of the fuel could not be determined.
