A small fraction of Texel WWII history. Crewmembers of the ND421, buried at the Commonwealth War Cemetery at Den Burg.


PA474: Lucky Escape

Days after the Texel fly-by news broke that PA474 blew an engine during an UK test flight. It was so fortunate that this hadn't happened over The Netherlands or North Sea!


FM213: The Canadian Lancaster

We hope the PA474 will be repaired, and 'up there'. As for now, the Canadian Lancaster is the only airworthy Lancaster left. (Pictured below - courtesy of Peter Kuntz).
