74 th D-Day in Normandy - A-10 Warthog with special (B&W stripes) over Omaha beach

74[SUP]th[/SUP] anniversary of D-Day in Normandy.


A short reminder so that we don't forget that 74 years ago, on evening June 5[SUP]th [/SUP], Allies' paratroopers were boarding the C-47 and preparing to jump over Normandy, from midnight, to free Europe.


For the airplane fanatics, you might be interested in reading this article on an A-10 Warthog exhibiting a special livery, with the black and white invasion stripes, that flew over the Normandy beaches to commemorate the 74[SUP]th[/SUP]anniversary of D-Day in Normandy.
