Danish WW2 Pilots


The nucleus of this site is the individual profiles of each person I have been able to find that was in air force service during the war. The profiles can be accessed though the alphabetical index.

Jørgen Edsberg

Jørgen Edsberg became one of the Danish voices in BBC at the beginning of the war. He wished to take a more active part in the war and volunteered for the Royal Air Force. He survived the war, but was killed in a tragic flying accident in April 1946.

Povl Anton Born

I have only few information on Povl Anton Born at this point. He joins the Army Air Services before the war, volunteers for the Winter War in 1939-1940, and returns to the Army after the war.

Vagn Frants Christensen

In September 1939, while war is declared, Vagn Christensen is working in London for Det danske Luftfartsselskab (the Danish Airlines). Following the German occupation of Denmark, he volunteers for the Royal Air Force. He is in service until 1 January 1946.

Viggo Brix

2Lt Viggo Brix was one of the more than 30,000 Danish-Americans who served in the US armed forces during the Second World War. He was trained as pilot and served in the Fifteenth Air Force in Italy. He was killed in action, when his flak damaged B-24 crashed shortly before landing returning from a bombing mission over Ploesti.
