Pegasus Prepares for Project 65

The Normandy bridges linking Ranville to Bénouville were the objective of the British 6th Airborne glider infantry, six of whose gliders landed noiselessly shortly after midnight on D-Day, i.e., six to seven hours before the actual seaborne landings started on June 6, 1944.

Two years to go, and already the Brits are planning to celebrate the 65th anniversary of Pegasus Bridge with Project 65.
