On 20 September 2019 a memorial was unveiled in Opheusden to commemorate all plane crashes during World War II in the Neder-Betuwe region. The memorial ‘Airmen in the line of fire’ consists of a main element made of a column with the silhouette of an aircraft. On both sides there are two rows, 16 columns in total, each showing the silhouette of an aircraft. They symbolise the 16 aircraft that crashed in the area of Neder-Betuwe during World War II.
An information panel nearby illustrates the history in brief. This panel and each column refer to a website with information on each aircraft and its crew. The combined Committees 4/5 May in Neder-Betuwe are responsible for the memorial and its unveiling.
