Itโ€™s the home airbase we use for our heavies mateโ€ฆ same as in real life with the RAF ๐Ÿ˜‰

This looked like a great flight but what makes it even better is the meaning actually behind it honoring those who lost their lives or served on D-Day. Great photos.

Looks great! Awesome pictures and what a meaningful flight. Never forget the brave men that stormed the beaches and parachuted on to them 75 years ago today.
