STORY

Statements from three of the survivors suggest that the aircraft missed the drop zone during its first pass and the skipper told the pilot to return for another attempt, but failed to make a full turn the sea, to the right.

Crashed from Pointe de la Percée near Vierville-sur-Mer.

4 KIA + 15 paras KIA.
