Could the Allies have won the war without aviation? Discover what went on behind the scenes of the historical air battle in Normandy.
D-Day: Wings of Victory
52' (ENG, GER)
In 1944 in Western Europe, the stage is set for the largest, most ambitious aerial offensive in history. On the night of June 6th, 4,000 aircrafts took off from England in just a few seconds. Never before had so many planes and gliders been mobilised towards one destination: Normandy. This offensive was prepared in the strictest secrecy over two years by British and American forces, in order to free the World from Nazi barbarism. Thanks to the work of historians, we follow the Normandy landings from an aerial perspective for the first time. We discover what went on behind the scenes of this historical air battle, for example in one of the most secret bunkers of the Second World War in Uxbridge, and meet its most emblematic heroes. We get a birds-eye view, boarding a Second World War liaison aircraft to relive, with the help of the pilot, one of the first aerial attacks of that historic night. See how, on D-Day, the Allies flew 11,000 sorties whilst the Germans flew 300, in a battle that would pave the way to Victory.
