Mont Saint-Michel Flyby
Air Force Brig. Gen. Richard G. Moore Jr. flies a C-130J Super Hercules past Mont Saint-Michel in Normandy, France, June 3, 2017, during an event commemorating the 73rd anniversary of D-Day. Moore is commander of the 86th Airlift Wing.
On June 6, 1944, nearly 160,000 Allied troops landed along a heavily fortified, 50-mile stretch of French coastline in the historic operation known as D-Day.
More than 9,000 Allied soldiers were killed or wounded on the beaches of Normandy, but by day’s end, the Allies had gained a foothold to begin liberating Europe.
Thank you Air Force Senior Airman Devin Boyer
