- E.Alberings had planned to make a night flight over Riga, dropping leaflets publicizing his new book.
- The flight was to begin in Spilve. He started the engine by turning the propeller, but he lost his cap
in the process. As he searched for it on the ground, the aircraft began to move. His colleagues
attempted to stop it, but were unable, and their calls of warning were lost in the sound of the engine.
The aircraft struck Alberings, breaking his right hand and left leg.
- Alberings was taken to the Red Cross hospital for treatment.
