Aero-News Quote of the Day
"The Army still wants no part of it,"
said Richard Mandich, Return To Normandy Association president.
"But the French government gave us the OK to jump on June 7, so
that’s what we are going to do. I have to admit it makes us

this statement. I don’t think we’ll be doing this jump
on the 70th anniversary of D-Day."

has refused to grant them permission for the drop. So, they went
around the Army, instead working out an agreement with French
officials to make the jump anyway -- June 7th.
