Miss Montana parachutists ready for 75th Anniversary D Day jump

MISSOULA, Mont. (Tribune News Service) — More memories are in store overseas, but parachutists with the Miss Montana to Normandy project have a bright one to tuck away.

It happened on a drop-dead gorgeous Tuesday morning in Plains, and in Al Charters' words was "Norman Rockwell-esque."

Seven men and women made their first jumps from Miss Montana, the historic DC-3 out of which they plan to bail over France in less than three weeks.

Miss Montana remained grounded in Missoula on Friday, her journey to the 75th anniversary of D-Day stalled out by a series of thunderheads to the east.

The project's decision-makers have stopped trying to outguess the weather to set even a tentative departure time, but it probably won't be Saturday, either.
