Fort Breendonk

AIRVŪZ STAFF NOTE :

Contributor and pilot Brent De Bleser created this rather haunting drone video of Fort Breendonk, a Belgian fortress in the north-central part of the country.  The fortification was constructed prior to the outbreak of World War I to protect the port of Antwerp, which was eventually overrun by the German Army as part of its invasion of France.  In World War II, Ft. Breendonk was again captured by invading Germans, and developed a fearsome reputation (by Western European standards) as an SS prison camp.
