The C-47 That Led the D-Day Invasion- “That’s All Brother”


“That’s All Brother” C-47 42-92847 on June 5, 1944.

The C-47 42-92847 “That’s All Brother”, the aircraft that led the D-day Invasion on June 6, 1944 will be acquired by the Commemorative Air Force (CAF).  “That’s All Brother” is currently owned by Basler Turbo Conversions, a company that rebuilds C-47’s and DC-3’s and replaces their radial engines with turboprop engines.  The CAF recently launched a kickstarter campaign and within days the $75,000 goal to purchase the aircraft was reached.  With the campaign being open until July 5, 2015, the CAF has stretched its goal to $250,000 which covers the cost of complete restoration to “That’s All Brother”‘s original condition.

To help support the restoration of “That’s All Brother” please donate through the CAF’s kickstarter page by clicking the picture:
