Whiskey 7 is one of the last airworthy planes from D-Day. It departed Geneseo on May 15 and has arrived in Europe where it's taking part in Memorial Day festivities in Germany.

"It's going to be quite an honor for everyone involved to pay respect to the greatest generation," says Whiskey 7 crew chief Mike Lindsay. "I think this is something Europe and the world is never going to see again."

More than 25,000 came out to an air show at Duxford, England Sunday. Paratroopers will jump out of Whiskey 7 when it flies over Normandy during the 70th anniversary celebrations there on June 6.
