Unternehmen Bodenplatte 60th Year Anniversary!

Today it is 60 years ago that hundreds of Luftwaffe fighters roared over the Low Countries to attack Allied Airfields. An attack that had my interest since the first time I heard about it and that would end in something that I never thought was possible. This morning I got a call from a stil very enthousiastic and bright Ewald Trost, former Hpmt. and Staffelkapitän of 2./JG 6 who was shot down on 1.1.45. Sixty years ago he was at this time in a Dutch hospital treated by Dutch doctors for his wounds he sustained in his crashlanding near Eindhoven. A great character and strong supporter for our Bodenplatte book. Finally I want to ask you to remember the dozens of German fighter pilots that are stil are unaccounted for after the raid of 1.1.45. May they rest in peace and let them be a reminder for the horrors of war.
