A C-130 Hercules from the 123rd Airlift Wing has been striped with historically accurate Allied Forces livery in honor of the 75th anniversary of D-Day. Two Kentucky C-130s and more than 30 Kentucky Air Guardsmen deployed from their base in Louisville, Ky., June 1, 2019, en route to France, where they will participate in a D-Day reenactment by airdropping U.S. Army paratroopers over Normandy. The D-Day invasion, formally known as Operation Overlord, turned the tide of World War II in the European theater. (U.S. Air National Guard photo by Dale Greer)
