The history of the airplane is not yet fully revealed. But it is known that it flew
the D-day operation, carrying troopers of the 2nd Battalion, 508th Parachute Infantry
The plane did so as part of the 62nd Troop Carrier Squadron, 314th Troop Carrier
It carried chalk number 17 on that flight.
The crew was:
1st Lt. James R. Hamilton (pilot)
2nd Lt. Ernest R. Scott (co-pilot) Sgt. Aaron M. Womack Jr. (radio operator) Sgt. Henry
H. Gardner (crew chief)
It is not known if the plane flew more missions to normandy nor if it flew during
other airborne operations. It did not fly the Holland operation (Market Garden) with
the 62nd Troop Carrier Squadron. So it seems that the plane shifted to another outfit.
