GENESEO — One of the National Warplane Museuem’s most treasured aircraft shone in national news as part of a story on Veteran paratroops featured by CNN.
The restored a Douglas C-47, affectionately named ‘Whiskey-7,’ is one of the few fully operational planes that dropped soldiers behind German lines the night before the Allied invasion.
National Warplane Museum received national recognition from the Daughters of the American Revolution (DAR) for restoring Whiskey-7.
Whiskey-7 was flown back to France in 2014 for the 70th anniversary of the invasion and dropped parachutists over Whiskey 7’s original jump zone.
