During an UXO survey in IJmuiden, T&A found shards of a Tallboy. Tallboys were British aerial bombs used to destroy U-boat bunkers. With a length of 6.4 meters and a weight of 5,400 kg, the Tallboy was the largest of its kind. It could therefore only be deployed by a specially adapted Avro Lancaster bomber.
The recovery of the wreck of a Short Stirling, which lies at the bottom of the Markermeer, has started on August 31st. The British bomber crashed during the Second World War. The Dutch Ministry of Defense will carry out the salvage with the help of a specialized contracting company. In 2019, T&A Survey conducted a detection and demarcation investigation into the suspected remains of this crashed bomber for the Municipality of Almere.
