Duxford live stream on Twitch

TwitchTV has someone touring the Imperial War Museum in Duxford, UK . One of the channels has a live stream of some of the stuff going on there for the commemoration of D-Day.
https://www.twitch.tv/dasvaldez
I do not know how long the live stream will be.

They are set up next to the Clipper Tabitha May DC-3 now. One of the engine cowlings is off for some maintenance and the crew looks like they are getting ready to start the engine.
Edit: The engine started just fine. Nice sound.

Now they are in Normandy talking to some British Para reenactors in Paratrooper Drop Zone K near Sannerville, Normady, France.

Looks like the main formation has arrived and are getting ready for a drop.

That looked real good. Quite a few C47's in D-Day invasion stripes dropped a couple of sticks each. The sky had a lot of parachutes. Very nice. The sound of the main group flying over while dropping was impressive.

Earlier, when the C-47's were first spotted, the village nearby started ringing the church bells. That was a nice touch.

It has been very entertaining so far. Lots of good info and talks with pilots, crew, and reenactors.

The same group are going to continue the live stream on 6 June from another location in Normandy.
