EAF D-Day Remembrance Flight US Sector

Today marks 75 years since the assault was launched on the Atlantik Wall on D-Day. We as GAF/EAF wanted to do something special to remember those heroes that fought on the Normandy beaches and in the towns. Yesterday we flew over the British sector and today we flew over the US sector. Below are some of todays photos. Please enjoy them and help us remember the veterans and those that paid the ultimate price for our freedom. Lest We Forget!

Guess what we did here in Southern England where it happened? We flew several spitfires and DC3’s counting up to 35 from Camebridge to Normandy at 1,800ft. They were too far away. This was my view through binoculars Haha

This is property of Carl Simmons. These were taken over Eastbourne yesterday afternoon. They are low quality because of some simple phone. You can see how many actually flew over, it’s amazing.
