On September 12, 1944 a B-24 liberator called the “Dixie Flyer” crashed 500 meters south of this location in the Netherlands. At the time there were nine crew members on board. Five of the crew members survived the crash, while the other four died on impact. They were buried in the graveyard of Nes.
On November 10, 2001, Lt. Kenneth E, “Sam” Webster, the captain of the Dixie Flyer, unveiled this monument as a reminder of his fallen crew members and as a reminder of the war.
