That’s All, Brother, the C-47 that led the first wave dur­ing the in­va­sion of Nor­mandy, has been turned into a fly­ing mu­seum for the 75th an­niver­sary of D-day.

More than 800 C-47s dropped around 13,000 para­troop­ers over Nor­mandy. On June 6, 1944, thou­sands of men were de­ployed from Eng­land to France to fight the Nazis. D-day was the be­gin­ning of the end of World War II.
