Allied Air Support: Operation Overlord

February 10 @ 1:00 PM - 3:00 PM

It was often asked by the troops on the landing beaches in Normandy – ‘Where
was the Air Force’? Little known to them, that at the time, the allied Air Forces
were occupied attacking the German Luftwaffe in parts near and far to assist in
stopping the German’s from re-enforcing their Atlantic Wall defenses! On that
day, more than 12,000 Allied Aircraft were involved in keeping the German
Army & Air Forces from stopping the invasion. This is that story – one you’ve
probably never heard before!
Presented by: Guest Speaker Mike Lavelle
