65th Anniversary D-Day celebrations

A whole weekend of celebrations for the 65th Anniversary of D-Day is underway; and this lunchtime reached us here a good 3/4 hour from the nearest landing beaches. Wave upon wave of military planes banked and turned over us heading to the parachute drop at St. Mere-Eglise.

They appeared from the west – over the Channel Islands and the West Cotentin coast


they banked and turned


coming so close

027 (2)

then away south east towards St. Mere-Eglise


then they were back again


more and more


circling and banking for about an hour


even the dogs next door were trying to see what was happening
