Searching for Halifax NP711

We're raising funds to help finance a documentary film on the crash of the Royal Canadian Air Force Halifax NP711 on February 21, 1945, following a bombing raid over Worms, Germany. All seven crew members perished after the aircraft was shot down by enemy night fighters. This documentary focuses on the crew's final hours and efforts between 2018 and 2022 to excavate and recover the remains of the aircraft at the crash site on a hillside near Leistadt, Germany. The documentary features interviews including living witnesses to the crash, and Erik Wieman, his excavation team, and the successful efforts to designate the crash area as a gravesite. Donations over $200 earn the individual an on-screen producer's credit, and all donations over $500 earn the donator an on-screen executive producer's credit. Funds will help pay for travel to Germany, video recording equipment, if necessary, general expenses, and salaries for the production crew. Funds will also help pay for post-production work. The project will make the documentary film festival circuit in the United States, Canada and perhaps Europe. The project is currently in pre-production with filming beginning and April. This is a worthwhile effort to document the lives of seven men who died for their country.
