Pictures from a wartime photo album

Andreas Huurman, a fellow collector of ww2 material found a photo album containing these pictures of Lancasters and B17's dropping food.

If anyone can tell us where these pictures are taken that would me much appreciated.

Subscript reads 29th April, but this is not correct since these are B-17's who started flying Operation Chowhound on May 1st.

The Manna Monument at Terbregge

At the exact spot of one of the dropzones overlooking the freeway at Terbregge is the Manna monument located. It symbolizes the belly of an allied bomber filled with food parcels. The monument has been the central location of the Manna / Chowhound commemorations since its unveilling in 2006. One year later the Air Commodore Geddes footpath was opened next to the memorial.

Diary of Norman Coats

May 3 - "Another mercy mission to Holland. We went deeper into Holland today. Very low altitude. I believe I must have waved at everyone in Holland. It is really a shame the ocean being turned into Holland. The great fields of tulips are beautiful. They had, "Thank You" spelled out with rocks. They could see me waving at them because they would point each others attention to it. Some of them had American flags waving them."
