    Near Limmersdorf on the edge of the forest, you will come across a flying memorial.
    On a small hill, planted with flowers, an aircraft propeller blade is half buried between tall oak trees, and in front of it a steel helmet.
    Shortly before the end of the Second World War, a Messerschmitt Bf 109 crashed at this point. Sergeant Willy Hamm probably saved the lives of many Limmersdorfers only 12 days before his 25th birthday by dragging his burning machine over the town instead of himself Save jump. Some of the older Limmersdorfer can still remember the day when the hunting machine with a booming engine raced only just past the church tower and moments later crashed at the place where the monument stands today.
