This weekend it was 60 years since the invasion of the allied troops on the beaches of Normandy. In the woods near the village of Best (NL) a museum called 'Bevrijdende Vleugels' reminds us of this event in our history. The museum has two well-restored Dakotas parked outside in the markings used during the invasion. The serial on this one is not real (290321 is the birth date of Jan Driessen, the founder of the museum). This aircraft is in fact ex N32MS and USAAF 43-2022.
