February 20th Program:
Our guest speaker will be Naomi
Wadsworth from the National Warplane Museum in Geneseo, NY.
She will be telling us about Whiskey 7, the Douglas C-47 that was
donated to the museum in 2005. Whiskey 7 flew as the lead ship for
the second wave troop carrier airborne invasion force during the
invasion of Normandy, France on June 6, 1944. In 1945, Whiskey 7 was
acquired by a civilian airline and converted to fly as a DC-3
airliner. Against staggering odds, the National Warplane Museum
managed to raise the funds needed to convert Whiskey 7 back to its
D-Day configuration and fly it back to Normandy to participate in
the 70th Anniversary celebration of the invasion of Normandy in
