Allied air superiority over Western Europe was an absolute requirement for the D-Day invasion, but just a few months before the invasion the Luftwaffe had essentially run the RAF and the U.S. 8th Air Force out of the skies over Germany. This is the story of how that happened and how the Allies won the air battle literally in the nick of time. Presented by retired Air Force pilot Marshall Michel (Col. USAF, ret.), currently the 52 Fighter Wing historian at Spangdahlem Air Base, Germany. For more information, call 504-528-1944 x 229.
