Market-Garden 2012 remembrance paradrop (the planes)

Yes, I was there at Eindhoven Air Base when these modern c-130 Herculesses and C-160 Transalls together with two beautiful 60+ year old C-47 Dakota/Skytrains took to the sky for 3 sorties to drop 1080 paras at the Ginkelse heide near Arnhem. The very same drop zone where the 1st parachute regiment and the Polish were dropped 68 years ago. Below the photos. I hope you like them.
