D-Day Support

Here are two iconic birds that made D-Day possible, the C-47 Skytrain which delivered paratroopers and gliders then supplies to the troops in France and the Waco CG-4A Hadrian glider which did the same but was towed by the Skytrain. After the Normandy landings the Skytrains would swoop in and grab and go/ pick up the gliders.

  1. I’m still amazed at the ability of our industrial sector in wartime to produce such a variety of aircraft and in such numbers to get a job done.
