An important piece of World War Two history is in Evansville. 

The C-47 Skytrain nicknamed “That’s All Brother” had a lead role in the Allied invasion of Europe on June 6, 1944. At the Evansville Wartime Museum Friday afternoon, Stephen Rose, the aircraft’s commander now, explained.

“It was the lead aircraft on the D-Day invasion. Behind this aircraft, eight hundred airplanes followed this aircraft over the beaches that morning.”

The C-47’s dropped around 13,000 paratroopers in France to support the invasion.

“That’s All Brother” is at the Evansville Wartime Museum through Sunday. You can tour the plane for a fee. There is a separate fee to enter the museum. You can also book a flight on the historic aircraft through their website,
