Members of the D-Day Squadron flew to France, following the authentic ferry route from the U.S. to the U.K., to participate in D-Day commemoration flights on June 5 and June 6 of this year. In this post, we feature eight of the Douglas transports flying in formation during the Warbirds of America portion of the Thursday, Friday and Saturday airshows. But first we feature two aircraft on display in Boeing Plaza: That's All Brother, a D-Day pathfinder recently restored by Basler Turbo Conversions located on the airport grounds, was available for tours, and The Duchess of Dakota was given D-Day stripes by reenactors demonstrating how the aircraft were given the distinctive markings at the last moment using brushes, brooms and mops.
