It was supposed to crash in the sea outside Bornholm in occupied Denmark. [29] V-89 contained "Kehl-Strassburg" [30] joystick radio control equipment that had been designed for the Wasserfall [31] anti-aircraft missile ( code named Burgund), [30] a development of that used to guide the Henschel Hs 293 glide bomb. [32] The ground controller appeared to have no trouble manoeuvring the rocket until it disappeared into the high cloud layer. [27] A captured German prisoner later explained to the British that the controller was an expert at steering glider bombs from aircraft, but that the spectacle of a rocket launch had caused him to incorrectly operate the control lever in his astonishment. [33] [34] Peenemünde guidance and control expert Ernst Steinhoff explained that the excited operator applied a set of planned corrections (such as that for the Earth's rotation) in the opposite direction to the way he had been instructed. [35] The rocket subsequently exploded in an air burst (a common V-2 malfunction) [27] several thousand feet above the county of Bäckebo mainly over a farm with no injuries, [36] [37] [38] and the valuable wreckage was exchanged with Britain by the Swedes for Supermarine Spitfires.
