RETURN TO NORMANDY
Restored WWII transport plane that dropped US paratroopers on D-Day heading back to France

Reported by: Associated Press
Reported: Thursday, May 15, 2014 8:05 PM EDT
GENESEO, N.Y.


A World War II transport plane that dropped American paratroopers on Normandy has departed a western New York airfield for D-Day's 70th anniversary commemoration in France.

The Douglas C-47 restored at the National Warplane Museum in Geneseo took off just Thursday afternoon from the museum's airfield. It's one of the last planes of its kind still flying and the only one from the U.S. participating in the June 6 events in Normandy.

The twin-propeller plane known as Whiskey 7 is one of several C-47s scheduled to be part of the D-Day anniversary, with parachutists made up of active and retired military personnel scheduled to be dropped over the plane's original jump zone.

Five pilots will take turns flying the plane to Europe.
