70 years D-Day


Recommended Posts

Dear all,

Last June four Dutch paramotorpilots (including myself) visited the Normandy area for the celebrations/commemorations of 70 years D-Day.

Unfortunately we were not allowed to fly during the first four days (3-6 June). Fortunately the weather was great from 7-10 June when the sky was opened again.

I made a 22 min video that starts with a short trailer, followed by about 10 minutes "ground" movie, including a short interview with one of the veterans at Omaha beach.

The last 10-12 min is filled with aerial footage while we were overflying the landing beaches, Pointe du Hoc, etc.

It is a tribute to all the heroes. Lest we forget.

A wonderfully moving and evocative film Frank. Hats off to you for putting in the effort for this.

I think I can speak for everyone on this forum to applaud the heroes from D day and beyond to give us freedom, including the freedom we now enjoy in the skies on PPG.

A very big well done.

Alan
