Crash Site Messcherschmitt 262 Voorbroekseweg Wierden

Crash location of a Messcherschmitt 262
December 10, 1944

Commemorative plaques can be found at eight locations in the Municipality of Wierden where an airplane crashed in World War II. As part of the motto 'Lest we forget', this initiative was developed by Kees Kroon of the Historisch Kring Wederden in consultation with the municipality. It concerns eight crash locations plus the former V-1 launch track at Wierden.
