About the C-47A *That’s All, Brother* That’s All, Brother was the C-47A troop carrier aircraft that led the main Airborne Invasion on D-Day, June 6, 1944, carrying 101st Airborne Division paratroopers into France during the D-Day invasion. The aircraft was named “That’s All, Brother” by the aircrew, who felt it was a fitting message to Adolf Hitler. Following D-Day, That’s All, Brother served in Operation Dragoon, Operation Market Garden, the Relief of Bastogne, and Operation Varsity. After the War, the aircraft was sold as surplus, and its contribution to history was almost forgotten. In 2015, the Commemorative Air Force rescued the aircraft from a boneyard, completed a lengthy restoration to get it flying, and returned it to its World War II configuration. The aircraft plans to return to Europe for the 80th anniversary of D-Day commemorations in June 2024 with the D-Day Squadron’s Legacy Tour.
