A problem.........

And more then 20.000 households 4 hours without electricity.

The Dutch Royal Air Force was practicing low flying, but I think they need some practis more, because this was the second time in ten years. But, they were flying low, that is for sure!

They were really very, very lucky. Because they only hit the arrester wire on top with the nose, if you have a close look at the first picture you see it's missing. And that wire dropped down on the other wires, and caused the power cut. But if they had been a bit lower or higher, it had been a complete different story. And it happend in the night, so this is what you call bad luck and luck.
