Merville Battery Association members assemble a U.S. World War Two Douglas C-47 plane at the D-Day museum in Merville-Franceville, Western France May 2, 2008. A veteran of several major World War Two battles, including Normandy landings, the disastrous Arnhem 'Market Garden' operation, the siege of Bastogne and the last parachute drop of the war in Europe in March 1945, it was sold to Czech Airlines, then to the French Air Force and finally in 1972 to Yugoslavia after the war. To restore it, a team of volunteers trucked it to Normandy from Bosnia, where it was machine-gunned on an airfield near Sarajevo in 1994 during the Yugoslav civil war to prevent it from ever flying again.
