73 de COR


My name is Cor, I am living in a small village in the North Western part of the Netherlands called Anna Paulowna about 80 km. north of Amsterdam

I was born in 1928. After school in 1948 I became a Wireless Operator, joined the navy and was enlisted as a Flight Radio Operator.

Two years later I was selected for pilot training and received my wings as pilot in 1952

The next two pictures were made on the isle of Curacao where I was trained as a fighter pilot in 1953

After flying in the West Indies and the Netherlands I was sent out to Dutch New Guinea in early 1959. From mid 1955 untill end of 1957 I was an instructor-pilot at the Royal Netherlands Airforce Flying school in Gilze-Rijen. Here I flew the North American Harvard IIb

Below you see me in a Firefly mk.IV at the Buruku airstrip on the isle of Biak
