Airplanes of that era are SO MUCH better looking than today's airplanes...

Great video. Did that first plane (around 18 seconds into the video) look like it was taking off with its rear door open?

Proud to see N877MG DC-3/C-47B owned by the Historical Flight Foundation of Paine Field (Everett, WA) take off as part of this historic flotilla. This a/c actually spent time in WWII fling the Burma Hump

Last time I was manifested for a C-47 jump the plane had mechanical problems and wound up in the 82nd Airborne Division Museum. Same with the C-119.

Open or removed. Many of the planes used to drop paratroopers at that time had the doors removed.

Definitely removed. The doors open out, so they can't be opened in flight.

Some of them are Lisunov Li-2, a Russian-made Dakota licensed from Douglas

My dads good friend Gene Ragsdale "Uncle Gene" was piloting one of the gliders towed behind a C-47 caring troops on the night before D Day. Gladly both he and his brother :uncle Bruce" survived the war.

Are you sure it was over 30 aircraft? I know 2 were not able to fly on the day and that others promised for Duxford did not arrive. I believe the final number taking off for Normandy was 21. Can you confirm please?
loopgroup1
That was info from before the event. There were 250 jumpers per the media, so at 18 member sticks it could have been as low as 14 or 15 planes.
dbradbrook
Seen it confirmed as 21 with all relevant registrations quoted so I’m confident of this figure as per Fighter Control.

Thanks for confirming!

My comment should have been "FLYING" over the Burma Hump during WWII.
