I want to commend you on your excellent journal. I consider it my primary source of news about the OC business community. I want to call your attention to two items in the Dec. 7 article “Taking Flight.”
The article mentions “the 30,000 American airmen who died over Britain during World War II.” I believe it would be more accurate to refer to their having died over Europe. Other than those airmen who died while crash landing upon returning from bombing runs over Europe and the very few volunteers who died in the Battle of Britain before the U.S. entered World War II, the vast majority were killed over Europe.
Also, the article mentions “the DC-3 Flagship Orange County. It flew in Operation D-Day in 1942, dropping the 101st Airborne Division over France.” The 101st was dropped on the night of June 5-6, 1944, the night before the D-Day landing on the morning of June 6, 1944.
