Vierville; Lower Normandy; France

Frame details

Date: 06 June 1944
Location: Vierville; Lower Normandy; France
Coordinates (lat, lon): 49.364514, -1.240785
Description: Numerous Waco gliders are visible across this image, some badly damaged. Landing in the dark in the early hours of D-Day, many US gliders and paratroopers landed far from their allocated landing and drop zones. This caused delay in assembling into larger fighting units but also confused the defenders as to paratroop numbers and objectives.
Sortie: US30/4066
Frame: 1111
Image type: Vertical
