Shooting Range Twente Airfield

On the old shooting range the weapons and guns of aircraft were tested. Messerschmitts were set at the beginning of the range, with a bullet catcher along the range, catching the bullet in loose sand. There is a remembrance path alongside the range, with personal war time stories in the Fliegerhorst area. The range itself is restored.
