A then and now picture WWII

The men on the right are about to paratroop into France on D-Day.
The men on the left are the same men today.
More remarkable?
It's the same plane.

I intend to live forever. So far, so good - But, too many Birthdays can kill you.

I wish I remember where I saw it... They showed the Normandy beaches, as they were, then and now.

Changed, a bit...

I quite like viewing the 'then' and 'now' slide shows, and some are very good, and some the 'now' picture is not quite in the right position, but there may be reasons for that.
Some with the 'now' pictures are not a lot different from the 'then' ones, but of course nice and tidy now..
The nearest (so far) that I have come to see of the Normandy landing beaches, is when Vet's visit them, and tell their stories, and usually include some b&w pic's of how it was back then.

Having two monitors, I run the same video on both. I run the main monitor to the 'after' picture, then pause, and run the left monitor to the 'before' and pause, so that I can have a good look and compare the two in more detail, then restart and rinse and repeat..... ;D
But, that's just me.... :s:

Great stuff (once I got past all the 'cookie crap/adverts), as this is one that I have not seen before, so thanks!  :hat3:
