Into flight once more / a film by Adrienne Hall ; written by L.M. Oliver ; producers, Adrienne Hall, Gina Papabeis.
On an airstrip in Connecticut, a squadron of World War II-era DC3/C47 airplanes is forming the distinctive, throaty roar of their massive radial engines stirring up memories and challenges. Lovingly restored and flown here by passionate aviators from all over the country, each plane represents an investment of money and countless hours to honor the Greatest Generation who sacrificed their lives to protect freedom worldwide. Their mission: To fly from Connecticut to Canada, Greenland, Iceland, Scotland, England, and finally across the English Channel to Normandy, France where, on June 6, 2019, the members of this remarkable squadron will join roughly 500,000 people from all over the globe to celebrate the 75th Anniversary of D-Day. The squadron members' backgrounds and personal motives differ, but what unites them in recreating this historic journey is their commitment to honoring the veterans that secured peace for all of us, and celebrating their return home. For many of the men and women who served in World War II, seeing the vintage airplanes again sparked memories long held deep inside. At each stop on the journey from the United States to France, we will meet veterans as they reconnect with the planes that flew, provisioned, rescued, supported, and meant so much to them during wartime.
