Lost in Translation!

AviationPosted by Peter Smith Thu, August 09, 2018 18:03:36

In a similar exercise to the gathering of Dakotas next year to mark the 75th anniversary of D-Day the L-Birds back to Normandy association are planning a gathering of 40 or so Liaison aircraft over France to help mark the commemorations. This is a French based group with English translation on their website. I can't complain as my French borders on the non-existent but I think something has got a little confused somewhere!

Well, it brought a smile! I hope the event is the success it deserves to be. Good luck all involved.

Thank you for pointing out this glitch on our website. The corrections to the manually corrected translation had been lost and indeed were giving a silly content...

Both sides of the Channel ? Still early days yet though and the prospect of a pre-paid photo-call outfit making it exclusive no doubt.
