La Fiere

The bridge that was the battle ground for the 82nd during D-day is now the focus each year from a parachute drop. This year we had two drops from a C47 courtesy of the Liberty Display Team from the US.

Then various aircraft from both the USA and European air forces dropped around 500 men from the USA, Britain, Germany and France. The weather started fine but got worse as the day wore on. By the end we had all got very wet several times. One German paratrooper caused great excitement by missing the drop zone and landing amoung the crowd.
