I'd be glad to be of assistance but how do I get in touch with you? Do you have an e-mail address or a phone number you can share with me? My e-mail address is email@example.com
For Guilherme: I'm a grandson of Henrietta Friedheim, and a nephew to Bodo Sandberg. It would be a great pleasure for me to exchange data (are you possibly related to Max F.?). Hope that this message reaches you...
With all due respect, there are a few errors in this website that distract from an otherwise fascinating story. First, there is no country Holland, that's just the name of a region within the country that is the Netherlands. Second, Rotterdam wasn't bombed on May the 10th 1940, that happened on May the 14th, 4 days after the German invasion which in no way can be compared to 9/11. Third, when talking about ancient Fokkers, two out of the three pictures are of post-war Tiger Moths which were no fighter planes. Fourth, the SD was not German military police but a "secret police" of the SS. Of course the latter two are small details, but I really feel the first two are serious errors.
Hello I'm working on my genealogical tree and bodo Sandberg is part of it, being the son of Henrietta Friedheim.
I would like to know if you could help me to develop this part of the tree.
I have more information on this mother's side of the family, but not much about his father.
I'm glad the MDHA is focused on the Dutch Pilots that trained in Jackson.
Mississippi's World War II History is much neglected.
I would love to help with this project.
I work at the Mississippi Department of Archives and History in Jackson and we are currently researching the Dutch fliers who trained here during the war. I'm very impressed with the information you have here. It's good to know that there are others working on this important and untold story!
It is very good to know that warbirds are preserved, and even better to know that uncle Bodo, that is what I always called him, flew one of the last ones. He may have flown ship 3069 as well? He was a flight instructor after all.
Best regards, Ferry van der Geest jr.
WOW, owning and flying the last of the 24 Beechcraft AT-11's used by the RNMFS is very special indeed!! And what a coincidence that yours is serial number 42-3069, while the one my Dad flew during WW-II was serial number 42-3070! He would have LOVED to see, and fly, yours!
Maybe, one day, I can do that in his stead?? CT is not too far from NC...
I ran across this site while trying to find information on my airplane. I own and fly the last of the 24 Beechcraft AT-11's used by the RNMFS. Mine is serial number 42-3069. I was blown away when I saw the pictures here of serial number 42-3070!
