MISSOULA – There’s some big news to share with those who have been following the restoration of the historic Miss Montana airplane.

Following a brief Sunday morning test fight, the C-47 and her crew took off and headed to Normandy for the 75th anniversary of the D-Day invasion.

The blue skies presented the perfect window for this historic aircraft to begin its journey.

The highlight will be a team of paratroopers from Montana who will join their colleagues in jumping over the historic battlefield.
