The premiere of “Into Flight Once More,” a documentary narrated by Academy Award nominee Gary Sinise concerning World War II, will be held Saturday, June 4 at 7 p.m. at the National Museum of the U.S. Air Force.
Directed by Adrienne Hall, the film chronicles the journey of a squadron of fully restored WWII-era airplanes that went across the Atlantic Ocean in 2019 to commemorate the 75th anniversary of D-Day.
As the 78th anniversary of D-Day approaches, a celebration is being planned at the National Museum that includes the WWII Traveling Memorial, a flyover and tours of the historic planes. On June 6, 1944, Allied forces stormed several breaches in the Normandy region of France, a turning point in World War II which led to the liberation of Western Europe from the Nazis.
