Many focus on the ground fight when discussing the D-Day invasion but the work of allied airmen were admirable as well. The allied planes outnumbered the German Luftwaffe by 30 to 1 and not a single allied plane was shot down. This domination of the skies helped lead the day to victory and without it many more would have perished on those beaches. On the 75th Anniversary of D-day make sure to thank all WWII veterans that you know especially if they are airmen.
