Wings Over Camarillo Airshow 2014
The C-53 Skytrooper is a variant of the
historic C-47 Sktrain. The C-53 pictured below is a veteran
of the Normandy invasion (D-Day, June 6, 1944). US Marine
paratroopers jumped from this historic plane during the
afternoon show using the round parachutes that are similar
to the ones used in WWII. They jumped using static lines
from 1,500 feet.
