But these were the letters and numbers painted on the noses of Douglas C-47 Dakota units to identify which squadron the aircraft belonged to. With accompanying white and black invasion stripes painted on the wings and tail, the allied forces were easily identifiable, as they began the largest seaborne invasion in history, storming the beaches of Normandy on June 6th, 1944.

Callsign of the day

Callsign "Jayhawk"

I am cloked at all times in Kansas... I am a die hard fan of anything that has the word Kansas in it... If you don't see me in Kansas gear -out in town-, my socks or underwear probably say Kansas. Therefore, during my AIC Basic class, my instructors (after being annoyed with my bragging on Kansas teams day in and day out) had no choice but to give me the callsign "Jayhawk"...:) ROCK CHALK!
