Two missions to honour D-Day veterans on the 75th anniversary

In this episode, we are honoured and humbled to be part of 2 incredible stories commemorating the 75th D-Day Anniversary from 2 different perspectives, one Canadian and one American.


I’m really proud of how this came together. 

I fully admit that while filming over this crazy period, I had no idea how I was going to tell these stories… It felt like constant chaos trying to cover the action and capture the nerdy pilot nuggets that were all around me.  But I think we have both some great learning moments and a compelling episode here. Enjoy!

Happy weekend – I’m heading to Windsor for some RV-14 building, and Warbird flying!
