Memorial Crash Halifax LV 919

In the night from 12 to 13 May 1944, Halifax LV 919 of the RAF 466 Squadron crashed near Zondereigen. The 7 crewmembers were temporarily buried here on the churchyard.

Investigation at the crash site by the Plane Hunters Recovery Team has shown that a Lancaster crashed here and not a Halifax. The team is almost certain that Lancaster ND745 landed at this location.
