About D-Day: Over Normandy: The World War II Foundation hired one of France’s top aerial Drone camera companies to film some of the most iconic locations in Normandy from D-Day. The result is some of the most spectacular scenes of the landing beaches viewers have ever seen.
The WWII Foundation tells the story of these famous locations utilizing ONLY aerial footage from our Drone camera, along with archival footage from June 6, 1944.
The foundation is also matching 1-2 D-Day veterans with each location so they can share their stories of where they were and what they were doing on D-Day.
