Modest lodgings for the not-so-modest rotorcraft fleet of two VH-60s and four MV-22s supporting President Trump's visit to Normandy. The VH-60s stayed in a rudimentary general aviation hangar, and the Ospreys shared the tarmac outside with a derelict Noratlas.
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.
Previously Aeronavale 729, French AF 476229 and RAF KN307, this Dakota became F-GNFD in 1998. Stored at Le Touquet as N4332E till 10.06, when she was moved to Sainte-Mère-Église in Normandy for an airborne troop museum
