D-Day’s Lead Airplane Discovered – CAF’s Adam Smith – Warbird Radio LIVE!
WARBIRD RADIO – The Commemorative Air Force needs your help saving the C-47 that lead the US paratroopers during the D-Day invasion. C-47 92847 better known as “That’s All Brother” was discovered recently in Wisconsin. An article on WhittmanAirport.com shares a little about the discovery and how it was made:
“Matt Scales, the historian who tracked down the C-47 that led the main D-Day paratroop drops to Basler Turbo Conversions, shared his latest discoveries about his historic airplane.
“I found out that while it did lead the main force, we had the name of the aircraft wrong. The name of the aircraft was That’s All—Brother. We discovered this fact when we came across this footage of the C-47 taking off from Greenham Common,” writes Scales.”
Today, the Commemorative Air Force is working hard to save “That’s All Brother”. This Tuesday evening (6/9/15 at 8pm ET) Adam Smith joins Matt Jolley on Warbird Radio LIVE with an in depth look at the plan to return “That’s All Brother” to her former self. Hear all the details by tuning in for this special broadcast.
FYI…the guys from Warbirds News will also join the fun with a look at the headlines. Thanks for tuning in.
