Colorado pilot wants to find crew members who flew on his plane during D-Day invasion in World War II
CENTENNIAL – A Colorado pilot is on a mission and he needs help. Brendon Jewett owns a vintage DC-3 (which was previously a C-47) that actually flew in the D-Day invasion during World War II. Now, he wants to track down the crew members who flew that day. “It flew on the famous D-Day invasion. It was based at an airfield in England, Barkston-Heath Airfield, and it was loaded up with 14 brave paratroopers and a crew of 4. They flew at two in the morning to France, across the English channel and dropped paratroopers as part of the D-Day invasion.”
