Drone Records Remarkable Footage of Normandy Beach

first published on January 3, 2017 by

Drone footage from the 70th commemoration of D-Day in 2014 gives us remarkable views of Omaha Beach, Batterie de Longues and Point du Hoc. Although the massive amphibious invasion of Normandy occurred three quarters of a century ago, and wind and water has battered the historical landmarks, one can still easily imagine the morbidly impressive sights and sounds that happened that day. Oddly, Juno Beach is left out of the video, where nearly a thousand Brits and Canadians were killed, wounded, or captured.
