Omaha Beach Seen From the Skies

Denise Chery has a series of a dozen photos on the website of Geo magazine (a European version of the National Geographic with a green border replacing the yellow one) showing Normandy from the skies.

One third of those show battlefields from the D-Day landings in June 1944, including Pointe du Hoc, the military cemetery at Omaha Beach, and the remains of the artificial harbor at Arromanches; in addition, there's the statue of William the Conqueror from the point he left the continent in 1066 for the conquest of England
