Nationale dag van de rouw....

Today there is in the Netherlands a National day of mourning. Two planes with the bodys of the victims of the flight MH17 will arrive at 16.00 hrs. The flag of the Dutch team is half-mast..
Listen to the impressive speach of Frans Timmermans, minister of FA of the Netherlands, spoken during a special meeting of the UN.

"How horrible must have been the final moments of their lives, when they knew the plane was going down. Did they lock hands with their loved ones, did they hold their children close to their hearts, did they look each other in the eyes, one final time, in an unarticulated goodbye?"
Minister Timmermans.

Next week the 33th World Championship of Gliding will take place at Leszno. My wish is that all the pilots will fly safe together in the air, our air.  The glidercommunity will show the world we do not follow the madness of some people. They will fly in friendship, with respect for each other.
The thoughts of the Dutch team today are in Holland, to the people who have lost a loved one.

Teamcaptain of the Netherlands,
Frouwke Kuijpers
