Heiloo is not connected with the North Sea. The village had medical facilities that the Germans used in WW2 and as Marine-Lazaret (Navy Hospital). On November 29th 1943 a B-17 bomber made an emergency-landing 15 km to the North-West. It landed 1 mile off the coast in the North Sea. This was B-17 42-29787 'Wilder Nell 2' of the 379 Bomb Group. The Germans brought 3 crew members to this hospital, 1 survived but pilot Lt. Lefevre and 2 Lt. Valsecchi were dead. They were buried here in Heiloo, the pilot at first as Unknown. In 1945 he was identified and they were moved to Neuville-en-Condroz. With this Heiloo lost a part of its WW2-history. Today there are no war graves in Heiloo.
