World War II Pictures

D-Day

This picture was taken on D-Day, June 6th, 1944. The aircraft, a B-26, is flying over what appears to be Utah beach, one of the American landing zones. The bomber has been specially marked for D-Day with black and white stripes on the fuselage and wings, which were to identify itself as a friendly aircraft to ground units during D-Day and the weeks that followed.
