Photo report Opening 'Airborne at the Bridge'

On 30 March 2017 the information centre Airborne at the Bridge opened at the new location. Guests of honour at this event were three Arnhem veterans: Arthur Letchford, David Whiteman and Geoff Roberts. Arthur is one of the few remaining veterans who reached the bridge and fought here.

With its phenomenal view of the world-famous John Frost Bridge, Airborne at the Bridge tells its visitors the personal stories of the British lieutenant John Grayburn, the German Hauptsturmführer Viktor Eberhard Gräbner and the Dutch captain Jacob Groenewoud who fought and died here during the Battle of Arnhem in September 1944.

The veterans got a sneak preview of the new information center before the event started.

Fly-by's by 2 Harvards of the Royal Netherlands Historic Flight marked the start of the offical part of the event.

After the release of a couple of pigeons, the information center was declared to be openend.
