As Allied forces closed on Germany from all sides and the war in Europe was coming to an end there was one thing that frightened German servicemen more than anything else – capture by the Red Army. Luftwaffe pilot Eugen Lorcher had no intention of letting this happen and on the evening of May 8, he fueled up his Focke-Wulf 190 and prepared to escape to the west. Taking off from their home airfield in the Czech Republic, Lorcher had also bundled his fiancée into the radio compartment of the aircraft and made their bid for relative safety.

The aircraft was flying at very low level, to avoid being shot down by Allied fighters, but Lorcher feared being destroyed at any moment as they were taking ground fire and in danger of striking the ground. Gaining height at the last moment, in an attempt to find a suitable landing spot, the Focke-Wulf belly-landed in a field near the parental home of Lorcher and both he and his future wife walked away from this incredible incident, with their war finally over.

The Focke-Wulf Fw 190 was a German single-seat fighter aircraft used by the Luftwaffe during World War II. The prototype was first flown on June 1, 1939 and production deliveries began in late 1941. The Fw 190 proved to be suitable for a wide variety of roles, including; air superiority fighter, strike fighter and ground attack. From 1941 to 1945, over 20,000 Fw 190s were built.
