That’s All, Brother
The Commemorative Air Force (CAF) is the largest flying museum in the world. In 2015, an iconic piece of history was discovered lying in an aircraft boneyard in Wisconsin. It was the Douglas C-47 That’s All, Brother – the airplane that led the massed paratroop drop on D-Day. The CAF set a goal to restore the aircraft to flying condition and as close as possible to its authentic D-day configuration.
On January 31, 2018, That’s All, Brother made its first post-restoration flight. It was the first time the plane had been flown in nearly ten years, and the team was ecstatic! With the first flight behind us, our sights are now set on Normandy. We need to get the plane painted and there are a lot of interior details to add in order to make That’s All, Brother one of the most authentic C-47s flying. We need your support to finish the restoration of this proud old airplane in time for the 75th Anniversary of that first D-Day flight on June 6, 2019.
