CBS story about a 1944 vintage C-47 that has been in a museum for the last 18 years and restored to flying condition to participate in the D-Day 75th Anniversary celebration and fly over.

 

Although not used in combat, it was later used for air dropping smoke jumpers over Montana wild fires.

I didn't know this story, but here're some pictures (showing the C47s) I took during the commemoration in Normandy that year...

 

Having a good 600mm camera helps for long range shots :)
