In 1944, Douglas C-47s belonging to the 62nd Troop Carrier Squadron dropped hundreds of troops as part of Operation Neptune to establish a bridgehead in Normandy. 75 years later, two Hercules transport of the same unit took part in the anniversary celebrations on and above the French coast. The C-130J with the serial 14-5802 received so-called "invasion stripes" which were applied to fuselage and wings of the majority of Allied aircraft during and after "D-Day".

Lockheed C-130J Super Hercules

Designed to function as a troop, medical evacuation and cargo transport aircraft, the C-130 Hercules was first flown on August 23rd, 1954. Built by Lockheed and capable of over 40,000 lbs of payload, this four-engine turboprop aircraft is quite possibly the most versatile tactical transport in existence. Its modern roles include airlift and airdrop, electronic surveillance, search and rescue, space-capsule recovery, helicopter refueling and aerial attack. Capable of takeoffs and landings from unprepared runways, the C-130 has even landed and taken off from a carrier deck without benefit of arresting gear or catapults.
