Market Garden 2019; Dropping @ Ginkelse Heide

All,

This year the 75th Market Garden Memorial was organised in the the Netherlands. Operation Market Garden was a World War II military operation fought in the Netherlands from 17 to 25 September 1944. Market Garden consisted of two sub operations during the Second World War. The first part was Operation Market, which was an airborne assault to seize the key bridges over the main rivers in the Netherlands. The second part was Operation Garden, which was a ground attack moving over the seized bridges to create a corridor to invade Germany. During the Market Garden Memorial it was common that the transport aircraft would fly in tight formations to drop the para troopers in the landing zones. All the aircraft came in shortly after each other during the recovery of the mission. The aircraft in this video came in like an elephant walk taxiing very close after each other. This gave a wonderful setting to shoot this video at the military platform at Eindhoven Air Base in the Netherlands. Participating aircraft in this formation were from Belgium, Germany, Great-Britain, Italy, the Netherlands and the United States.
