GENESEO, N.Y. (AP) - A World War II military plane that dropped paratroopers over France on D-Day - and again 70 years later - will be on display at the National Warplane Museum’s summer air show.

The western New York museum is home to the restored Douglas C-47 known as Whiskey 7. It’s believed to be one of the last C-47s still flying which actually participated in the D-Day invasion at Normandy on June 6, 1944.

It returned to France last year to help commemorate the 70th anniversary.

This air show runs from July 10-12 at the Geneseo museum.

Museum officials on Wednesday say this year’s event will feature plane rides for visitors and several aerobatics performances, along with a celebrity tandem jump and a salute to first responders.
