Aircraft salvage in Flevoland

By: Tjerk Zwanenburg 

 

Tjerk Zwanenburg is the son of former salvage officer GJ Zwanenburg  who salvaged many aircraft during the reclamation of Flevoland. 

 

Tjerk, now retired, used to go with his father to the recovery of aircraft in his youth. Based on those experiences, the stories and his father's archive, Tjerk wants to follow in his father's footsteps to share knowledge through guest lectures at schools and lectures. 

The presentation is about aircraft recovery in general and the B-24 Liberator 42-7638 in the Oostvaardersplassen in particular. In the general part, matters such as usefulness, numbers and why relatively many aircraft are salvaged in the polders are discussed. In addition, Tjerk will bring along various authentic objects from salvaged aircraft.

If there is interest in a guest lesson or lecture, please send an email to info@4meiherdenkingdronten.nl
