    C-47 Returns to Normandy

    I know we have a few pilots and aviation enthusists on the forum. This is an article about a C-47 that participated in the D-Day invasion 70years ago that will return for this years commemoration. Definitely changed the course of the world. (my apologies for not having all of the allied flags)
