Crash Location Hampden l AT 191 Biddinghuizen


During World War II many aircraft crashed in Eastern Flevoland. During the draining of the polder, many of these aircraft were found and salvaged. In 2008 the 4 may Memorial Foundation Dronten had the idea, to register, to describe and to mark the location were the aircraft crashed with a memorial pole. This to remind the Airgunners and to make history visable.

The unveiling of the first pole was on 29 april 2011 in the Eskimolaan in Dronten.
Memorial pole 1 was the first of a total of 16 poles, which in 2011 were placed by the Foundation 4 may Memorial Dronten.
