The leaders of the free world – presidents, prime ministers, and monarchs – will gather on the beaches of Normandy to commemorate the 80th anniversary of D-Day.  They, along with honored veterans and thousands of spectators from around the globe, will gaze upwards, eyes transfixed on a solemn procession of legendary aircraft from WWII.

For over a generation, WWII U.S. Naval ships and aircraft have been absent from the ceremonies.

We’re about to change that.

Ready-4-Duty”, a 1944 Douglas R4D-6S Skytrain and WWII U.S. Naval veteran, is making the transatlantic journey from Dallas, Texas, to bring the U.S. Navy back to Normandy for the 80th anniversary of D-Day and Operation Neptune.

A flying time capsule, “Ready-4-Duty”, her crew, and a precious cargo of U.S. Naval artifacts will remind world leaders, international spectators, and the media of the invaluable contributions and sacrifices made by the U.S. Navy and her sailors.
