WWII aircraft salvaging

During the Second World War more than 5500 planes crashed on Dutch territory. Most of the wrecks can still be found in the Dutch subsurface. Approximately 400 of these airplane wrecks probably still contain human remains of the crew members. During the salvage operation, in addition to the remains and personal belongings of the crew, heavy explosives (aerial bombs), on-board weapons and harmful substances may also be found.
