What can you find on my website
I am Volkert Jan van den Berg. In de summer of 1966, when I was 17 years old, I started my hobby at Soesterberg Air Base in The Netherlands, close to the city of Utrecht. Soesterberg AB was very attractive for aviation enthusiasts. The Royal Netherlands Air Force (RNLAF) was based at the north-side of the field and the United States Air Force in Europe (USAFE) at the south-side called "Camp New Amsterdam".
Under the name of CRMAP (Combat Review Military Aviation Press) Ron Damstra and Volkert Jan van den Berg started their partnership on the 13th of October 1995. On that day CRMAP was officially registered with the Chamber of Commerce with the number 30129960 as a press agency specialized in the modern military aviation photography of today.
We offer our reports to well-known military aviation magazines abroad. We are pleased to give viewers on the internet the opportunity to see many of our reports with pictures.
