24th December 1944 Website

Hello All,

First of all a Happy New Year to you all!

For a couple of years now I have spent time & money to investigate how a 8th AF mission was planned & executed.
My particular interest went to the largest mission ever undertaken.

I have decided to create a new website dedicated to the mission flown on Dec 24th 1944.
Although this site is still under construction I already would like to share the url:
www.24december1944.com

I am very much new on making a website so I am still in a learning process.
Currently I am working with wordpress.

My Goal with this site is to tell the story about this mission:
How was it planned? How was it executed? What were the results?
To do this I have for almost every BG the mission report.
This mission is off course known for the loss of Gen Castle.

Also I have tried to recreate the mission in Google Earth based on planned data.
Unfortunately I have been unable to upload the *.kmz file due to security issues on my site.
I am still looking for a google earth plugin.

If interested in the Google Earth *.kmz file please send me a PM and I will give it a try to share it via E-mail.

Last couple of days I have done the following:

I have uploaded formation plans for several units, the page with links can be found here: http://24december1944.com/formation-plans/

I have also uploaded the first pages of each MACR report linked with the Dec 24th Mission.
This page with links can be found here: http://24december1944.com/macr/

Also updated are my personal info & sources.
I still have a long way to go though but any feedback at this point is highly appreciated.

Many Thanks,

Kind Regards
Joost de Raaf

Hello All,

Since my last message there have been many updates on my website.
Such as formation plans, personal stories, Statistics, General Naratives

I have also recreated the mission as it was planned in Google Earth.
It looks like this: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=RxvlNFzlebQ

Although it is still not finished, I do think i shows the shear magnitude of this particular mission.

If interested in the file, please send a E-mail to webmaster@24december1944.com

Kind regards,
Joost de raaf
