Last year an iconic piece of history was discovered lying in an aircraft boneyard in Wisconsin. It was the Douglas C-47 “That’s All, Brother” — the airplane that led the massed paratroop drop on D-Day.
The Commemorative Air Force reports it is in the final stages of acquiring “That’s All, Brother,” noting the C-47 will be a “star within our fleet, due to its historic significance.”
“We plan to acquire and restore this airplane to its original configuration and furthermore; it will become a touring educational experience in the future,” CAF officials said.
But CAF still needs to raise $75,000 by Aug. 31, which is why it is launching a Kickstarter campaign.
