In my village was on the 27th of June 1909 the first take off and landing of a flying machine (Wright Flyer) in the Netherlands! It took only 6 minutes for 1 km on a maximum height of 15 m. The location was the “Klappenbergse Heide” and there was a crowd of ca 30.000 to 40.000 spectators from all over the country and beyond. On the spot where it all happened is now an obelisk (gedenknaald) and an information plaquette. On a roundabout is a replica of the Wright Flyer on a pilar. It was the start of aviation in my country.

My layout is very simple: the background is a photo of a nice blue sky with a lot of blur. I took a couple of sky photos some time ago for use when needed. The title “Luchtvaart” means aviation.
