Information Sign Jack Lunn Heukelum

On 24 January, 1945 the Typhoon PD464 of Flight Lieutenant John Davis (Jack) Lunn from New-Zealand crashed at this location. Presumably the plane was hit by German Flak. Lunn didnít survive the crash and a part of his plane and body are still buried close to this information board. The landowner refuses a salvaging operation. A part of the body of the pilot is buried at the cemetery of Vuren.

This information board is part of the WW2-route across the Lingewaal municipality. This route starts at the WW2 & Aviators Museum Rivierenland at the Vuren Fortress and contains six locations where allied aircraft crashed down or made an emergency landing.
