1944 “Greatest Sky Armada In History” Video

• CATEGORIES: Features, videos

There’s only a brief shot of a jeep, but I found the footage of the gliders compelling.

Various shots of aeroplanes all marked with D-day signs standing in an airfield. A motorcycle and jeep drive up a ramp into the planes. Various shots of the paratroops as they prepare on the ground.

The aeroplanes taxi and take off for Holland, planes include Halifaxes, Stirlings and Albermarles, as well as Horsa gliders and Wacos. Air to air of the planes getting airborne and flying in formation out across the Channel. Ground to air formation of Dakotas passing over Belgian town, people look up at the aircraft. M/S Dakota plane that has crashed into a panzer tank burning in a field.

Aerial shot of the gliders casting free and heading to ground, they land. Various shots of paratroops parachuting to the ground in Holland. Various shots of planes in the fields.

“1947 JEEP WILLY, this is a shout out to the great men and women that made this country great!!! Building these jeeps to last longer then any modern day auto…Biggest mistake of one of our salesman here is that he passed on the chance to buy one of these that was still in the crate (for only $500.00 bucks), dropping these out of the back of an airplane and assembling them on the go to keep our troops mobile, talk about a modern day marvel… Enough of a history lesson for today, lets get down to brass tacks.

This 1947 green machine is amazing…basically rust free (wish i could say the same), paint and interior are above average. Runs and drives which is most excellent because who wants one of these as “yard art”? its all about the drive ability and this wicked wheeler can conquer anything, from a simple street speed bump to the side of any mountain you dare to roll over!!!

Feel free to come on in and take a look at this piece of history,(bring your checkbook and inform your wife that she just bought you your fathers day gift) museum hours M-F 10-7, S 10-6 closed Sundays
