C-47 D-Day Normandy Flyover (Video)Original Normandy C-47 flys over the beaches and villges it flew over 70 years ago with the help of the 37th Airlift Squadron's C-130. Two WWII vets, Bill Prindible and Bud Rice, watch from inside the newer plane as the plane they flew glides through the sky. (www.youtube.com) More...

I was part of this flyover event. It was very cool to see and participate in the events with the 37th Airlift squadron as well as all the events over Normandy.. Whiskey 7 heralds from the National Warplane Museum in Geneseo, NY (Airshow July 12-13, The Greatest Show on Turf)) We flew it across the north atlantic starting on May 15th, and it's on its return journey now, track it live at http://whereintheworldiswhiskeyseven.org or flightaware.com (which it gets closer to the states) and search for tail number N345AB
Thanks for the heads up!
I got no audio from the video. Checked a couple other videos while there with no problem. Tried several times, but no luck. Wish I'd been along for the ride, though.
Same here.. No audio.
I flew a Basler Turbo DC3 over the EAA Pioneer airstrip in Oshkosh for a group of vets in rememberence of D-Day... I know a PT-6 powered C47 is not quite the same... However I was honored to at least play a small part in acknowledging the sacrifice for freedom as we understand It today... I will never take for granted, nor forget, what has been paid for us all in blood.... Thanks vets!
