A Dornier 17 on a training flight suffered engine failure and crashed on the rocks next to La Rocco Tower on 1 November 1940. The three crew, plus another airman who had gone along for a ride, were all killed.

German records show them to have been the flight's commander, Lt Wilhelm Göhringer, who survived the initial impact but died later, Feld Werner Kramer, Uffz Grunmuller and Gefr Pfiffner.

The men were buried with full military honours in the German cemetery at St Brelade's Church.
