    Excellent. There was something similar at the La Fiere DZ near St Mere Eglise in 2014 and, no doubt, other locations as well. Also the BBMF Dakota was very active around Caen.

    2019?....just need to make a note...."the traffic jams will be even worse than 2014".....

    Circa 200 paratroopers as well. I am tempted to take my little pilot, very tempted :rolleyes:

    Very cool idea. I can think of somewhere else in 2019 where a mass drop would be a very fitting sight to see..

    Now....let me think.......little town north of Nijmegen? Made a nice film about it quite a few years ago :) starring the bloke who only asked to "blow the b****y doors off".

    Eben-Emael in 2020 if they can get enough JU52s.

    Me and my Bessie appear to be going-Can't believe I'm going to something not 1940 related :lol:

    She probably fancies the idea of advancing forwards across a battlefield for a change, Andy.

    She? The Sarge would have you on Jankers if he knew you were referring to him as a gurl !

    The confusion may have arisen because of you referring to him by a diminutive of Elizabeth :)

    Bessie name meaning

    Sergeant in the WRAC was she ? Don't worry, the secret is safe with us !
