Commemorations marking the 70th anniversary of D-Day are coming to a close. On Sunday, huge crowds watched a massive paratrooper drop.

Nearly a thousand paratroopers, from several countries, dropped out of the sky over Normandy, but this time in peace.

The aerial show reenacted the Normandy landings and closed a week of D-Day celebrations.
