Airborne Dropping Ginkel Heath 2013

On 21 September 2013 the annual airborne drop was being held on Ginkel Heath near Ede. Hundreds of parachutists dropped from Dakota, Transall and Hercules aircraft. Nice to view for the thousands of visitors. There were around 50 veterans.

STIWOT reporter Arjan Vrieze was there. He made the following report:
