Glider Collection Wolfheze

EXHIBIITION

Glider Collection Wolfheze

Location: Camping & Chalet Park "De Lindenhof",
Wolfhezerweg 111-113, Wolfheze, the Netherlands

On SUNDAY, SEPTEMBER 17th, 1944
the skies above the Netherlands were filled with aircraft. On that day and the next days, hundreds of British gliders and thousands of British paratroopers landed in the fields around Wolfheze. That event marked the beginning of what we now call 'The Battle of Arnhem'; an operation with one single goal: capturing the Arnhem bridge from the German occupying forces.

But what exactly were the gliders?
How big were they like? How many troops and how much materiel did they hold? How were they flown? The GLIDER COLLECTION WOLFHEZE shows the gliders of those days. By exhibiting large original pieces of these aeroplanes, tangible memories, pictures and stories, GLIDER COLLECTION WOLFHEZE provides an insight into many different types of gliders, their utilisation and the size of the whole airborne operation.

Now, 70 years onwards, the remark 'lest we forget' still holds its value. This is certainly applicable to this enormous arial operation. GLIDER COLLECTION WOLFHEZE contributes to that remenbrance with a rather unique collection.

Landmark: at the Glider Monument at the village's entrance.
