Long Description:
Tijdens de Tweede Wereldoorlog zijn er boven Nederland zo’n 6.000 militaire vliegtuigen neergestort. Ruim 1.000 daarvan zijn er in Noord-Brabant terecht gekomen. Dan gaat het zowel om geallieerde (Britse, Amerikaanse en Canadese vliegtuigen met bemanningen die uit nog veel meer nationaliteiten bestonden) als Duitse vliegtuigen.
De geallieerde vliegtuigen waren heel vaak bommenwerpers die bij bombardementsmissies op doelen in Duitsland geraakt werden door Duits afweergeschut (de zogenaamde Flak) of onderschept werden door Duitse jachtvliegtuigen (vooral ’s nachts, tijdens de zogenaamde Nachtjagd).

---------------------
During the Second World War, some 6,000 military aircraft crashed over the Netherlands. More than 1,000 of them landed in North Brabant. These were both allied (British, American and Canadian aircraft with crews consisting of many more nationalities) and German aircraft.
The allied planes were very often bombers that during bombing missions on targets in Germany were hit by German anti-aircraft fire (the so-called Flak) or intercepted by German fighter planes (especially at night, during the so-called Nachtjagd).
