Wonderful to see and great that they managed to save it from scrapping.

That’s All Brother was due to be stretched and re-engined when it was discovered to be a D-Day vet. It would not have been scrapped.

There are a number of D-Day vet C-47s flying in Normandy for the 75th anniversary.

A few friends of mine were able to participate in DDay memorial jumps along with Operation Market Garden jumps. Was a little jealous I never got the chance!
Jumped out of: C130H, C130J, C17A, C212, CH47, and UH60. Bucket list: C160, A400, C2

Heard two Dakotas over here on their way south (I'm near MAN) in the last few days. Sadly not visible due to cloud but confirmed by FR24. Got a brief view of a third today before it disappeared into cloud.
First two had routed via Prestwick but today's had come via Inverness.

I went to Duxford for a D-Day Dak photoshoot last night. Grand total of 23 Daks on the field - an impressive sight.

But to put it in context, 75 years ago, over 800 Daks were ferrying troops across to France. :shock:
