The pride of the National War Plane Museum in Geneseo is now just one stop away from its return to Normandy.
Whiskey 7, one of the last air-worthy planes to fly on D-Day in 1944, is now in England.
The C-47 twin engine plane took off from Geneseo last Thursday destined for France. The five man crew made eight stops along the way, heading up through Maine, Canada, Greenland and Iceland and over to Scotland.
They even stopped at Cottesmore Royal Air Force Base in the United Kingdom where the C-47 departed for Normandy at 10:30 p.m. on the evening of June 5, 1944.
The crew plans to meet up with the Liberty Jump Team who will parachute from the plane in Normandy on June 6th, the 70th anniversary of D-Day.
