GENESEO, N.Y. — The Geneseo Airshow took to the skies this weekend.

The National Warplane Museum hosted it showcasing fighter planes from World War II. That included performances from the Whiskey 7, a plane that led the second wave of attacks in the invasion of Normandy.

“The airplane has got 59,600 flight hours on it since it was built in 1943,” says Craig Wadsworth. “She flew as part of the European theatre during the war, came back to the U.S after the war, and was an airliner and a cargo plane for many years before we started flying her as a living testament to the many men and women who served our country during World War II.”

The show is always a spectacle and also a testament to veterans.
