    Hoi Sam, het spijt me dat te horen, ik hoop dat het snel beter gaat, hou je taai.
    That would definitely be awesome! Thank you very much in advance!

    The British balloons were eventually fitted with a squeaker that emitted a radio signal enabling the friendly aircraft to detect when they were nearing a balloon, there was much trouble geting the right frequency and system set up but they did work reasonably well. One UK area had to stop using the squeakers because of radio interference elsewhere.

    From the Sir James Martin offical biography

    It is impossible to calculate the success of the cable cutters, but on the basis of the feedback that he received James estimated that in excess of 500 aircraft and 2500 crew were saved by the cutters.
