    John,

    l just tried it, worked perfectly!

    The site (in Dutch), provides basic information on aircraft crashes on Dutch soil, or off the coast. The location mentioned for PZ349 is Harskamp (Dubbelsezand).

    Could someone else please access the link in post # 2., and tell us if it works for them.

    Col.

    Col, Tried and successful. It took sometime (five minutes plus) to get into the Verliesregister, but then the little man has to run from the Netherlands to New Zealand!!! Regards, Terry
