Follow up to our chat earlier - the original D-Day 'leader'

"It's going to be quite an operation. We'll do a flight around the Statue of Liberty and then head to Goose Bay, Labrador. After Goose Bay we're going to cross to Greenland, make a fuel stop, Iceland overnight. Then down to Scotland and Duxford, England.

"Other aircraft are going to meet us in Duxford – as many as 40 C-47s/DC-3s, and we'll drop troopers over the beaches of Normandy on 6 June."

Not had the time to watch much of this yet but here's Andrew Panton talking about Just Jane's history and potential restoration to fly including, I have see, some stuff about why the main spar is being left until the end of the resto.

SNJ Crash

VideoPosted by Peter Smith Wed, October 24, 2018 17:54:29

This SNJ-5 had to force land on a highway in California yesterday after engine failure. Must have been a bit of a surprise to see that in your mirrors! Thankfully the pilot escaped OK but the plane was destroyed after hitting the central barrier and catching fire.
