The Heroic Sacrifice of A C-47 Pilot

This is the story about 2nd Lt. Herbert Shulman, a pilot flying a C-47 Dakota filled with paratroopers for Operation Market Garden.

His C-47 is hit by anti-aircraft fire, but he chooses not to save himself, he puts the mission first and drops the stick of paratroopers on the Dropzone. Unfortunately, he is now unable to save himself, and he is killed in the crash landing of his plane.

At the Cemetery in Erp the propeller of his C-47 has been preserved as a monument, and in this video, we are going to visit the drop zone, crash site, and the monument.
