Waarom wordt in de ene gemeente wél en in de andere niet tot berging van deze vliegtuigwrakken, explosieven en militairen overgegaan?

News: Aircraft recovery IJsselmeer:

Aircraft recovery IJsselmeer

During the night of the 9th May, 1941 a British bomber was shot down above the IJsselmeer by the Germans. Apparently, it was a Vickers Wellington with six crew members, of which two are still missing. Because the aircraft has bombs on board, it must be recovered. Leemans will drain a part of the IJsselmeer in order to recover the plane. It’s the first time it happened this way in the Netherlands. The recovery will take about a month in collaboration with the municipality Fryske Marren and the Dutch Royal Air Force.
