Aviation history from WW2

Arnhem - Airbase Deelen near Arnhem was being used by Nazi-German during World War II. It was a strategic airbase for the "Nachtjagdgeschwader ", a group of night-fighters of the German Air Force. To protect the base from air attacks, all military buildings and bunkers were built as typical Dutch farmhouses, including real gardens. After the war the airfield turned into a dump. The Canadian army left over 37,000 vehicles on 'Dump Deelen' The traces of that time have been erased, except in the Museum Air Base Deelen.
