Resurrecting a Legend
On the night of June 5th, 1944, a C-47 paratrooper aircraft, nicknamed That’s All, Brother took off from England, to drop Allied fighting men into Normandy, to clear a passage for the tens of thousands of troops lying off the coast. Despite surviving dozens more missions, post war she disappeared. The C-47 that led the invasion armada was either destroyed in Europe, shipped home and broken for parts, or worse still, scrapped and melted. A chance discovery in 2015 led a scramble to save the aircraft, after standing for decades forgotten in a scrapyard. This documentary, 3 years in production, traces the incredible story of an American icon, its reconstruction & hazardous Transatlantic mission to honour America’s fallen in Europe. From the RTS Award nominated makers of hit series ‘Plane Resurrection’, “That’s All, Brother” is the epic restoration story of it’s incredible technical and emotional journey back to the skies. With unparalleled access to this priceless one of a kind aircraft, That’s All, Brother now faces a final battle. Can she really be restored?
