Aero-TV: "That's All Brother" -- Restoring a True Piece of Military History

History Comes Alive Thanks to A Magnificent CAF Effort

The story of the Douglas C-47 named, “That’s all Brother,” is fascinating from two points of view. First, it was the C 47 that that led the D-Day invasion in June 1944. Second, it still exists and has been found. The aircraft was on display at EAA AirVenture this year, and ANN CEO and Editor-In-Chief, Jim Campbell, met with Adam Smith, the Executive Vice President of strategic development for the Commemorative Air Force, to learn how they found it.

This is truly a case of stumbling upon a historic airplane rather than actively seeking it out.

ANN's Daily Aero-Term (08.31.15): Precision Approach Radar

Precision Approach Radar Radar equipment in some ATC facilities operated by the FAA and/or the military services at joint-use civil/military locations and separate military installations to detect and display azimuth, elevation, and  range of aircraft on the final approach course to a runway. This equipment may be used to monitor certain nonradar approaches, but is primarily used to conduct a precision instrument approach (PAR) wherein the controller issues guidance instructions to the pilot based on the aircraft’s position in relation to the final approach course (azimuth), the glidepath (elevation), and the distance (range) from the touchdown point on the runway as displayed on the radar scope.
