Airplane bomb in Lokeren

At the request of the City of Lokeren, Bom-Be detected an area a cycle track was planned. According to witness, an aerial bomb had impacted without exploding during WW II. First, we performed a multisensor surface detection, and subsequent analysis of the data indeed revealed the presence of an object with the characteristics of an aerial bomb. The City didn’t want to take any risks and contacted us again to approach this object. This proved to be a completely justified decision … You can watch the news items (in Dutch) on VTM and TV OOST, and find more photographs and explanations on our Facebook page, accessible without logging in.
