From the first post:

And since Marcel is from the Netherlands that would mean somewhere in the Netherlands. I am sure Marcel will give more info.
 
ok .. sorry i didnt think it would get such a respose ! ill post maximum data in future :)
ok its a lancaster Mk111 crashed at Papendrecht on 21st july 1944
serial no ND913 from the 115 sqd RAf
it was shot down by flak and all the crew perished in the crash and are buried at papendrecht general cemetry.the area where it was recovered from was desitined to be a new houseing estate but as is normal here in Holland if theres a know crash site then the area is fully cleared first.No one wants to sit in the back garden, light up the bbq and see it sail into oblivion after a 1000lb cookie goes up under your terrace.
