An unidentifiable flying object. Both presidential Falcon 7X jets arrived at Caen this afternoon for the D-Day commemmorations. They are devoid of markings of any size and indistinguishable. It is understood however that this one, the first to land at 4.08 PM, was No 86, call sign F-RAFB, with No 68 / F-RAFA following at 5.33 PM.
As Mr. Trump's VC-25 could not land at Caen, he decided to use a smaller plane. Now 09-0015 was 'Air Force One'... Luckily the type was familiar to him, as he, in days as a businessman, used to fly around in a civilian B757 nicknamed 'Trumpforce One'
42-100971 took part in the airborne landing at Sainte-Mère-Eglise.on D-Day. Bought by Prince Bernhard in 1946, the aircraft became PH-PBA, the Dutch 'Governemnt Dakota'. From 1960 it served as a calibration aircraft with the Dutch CAA. Preserved in front of the Aviodome at Schiphol when I was a kid, it was restored to flying condition by the Dutch Dakota Association in the late 1990s.
Painted as C-47 43-150877 of 95 Troop Carrier Squadron / 440 Troop Carrier Group. This Skytrain participated in the first wave to Normandy of 101 Airborne Division. These troops were dropped in the Carentan area on the 6th of June 1944. In fact N150D is ex USAAF 41-18401, French AF 118401 and Israeli AF 032/4X-FNX.
