While we were able to present some fabulous photographs and video from the days leading up to the D-Day 75th Anniversary Celebrations yesterday, we have just received some marvelous images from the D-Day Squadron’s photographer, Mike Killian, depicting the trip over to France on June 5th, and the release of re-enactors in WWII era parachutes and uniforms over the Drop Zone in Sannerville, near the French port city of Caen, so central to the initial D-Day operations 75 years ago this week. Rather than do a full article on these events, we will let the pictures, along with their captions tell the story of the journey over from Duxford, England to their final destination at Caen-Carpiquet Airport. Many thanks indeed to Mike Killian for these dramatic images! We hope you enjoy them as much as we did!
Here is a nice video of the take off from Duxford Aerodrome as well!
