Nice site, but your naming of the CG-4A as the Haig in the USAAF is incorrect. The British considered naming the glider Haig but chose Hadrian instead. The USAAF called the glider CG-4A or WACO CG-4A but never only WACO because WACO also designed and built CG-3A, CG-13A and CG-15A.

If this is near Nijmegen, the name of the village is Grave.
