  7. Normandy & Verdun

    Arrived in Paris & took rental due West to Caen & saw this city, then same car to tour Invasion beaches. Saw St Mare Eglise & Airborne Museum & Utah Beach. Utah was the best beach. Then drove to Omaha area, saw Cemetary Saw more Musseums Bayeaux Invasion Museum center. Saw British beaches Gold/ Sword /Juno & Hi Rise German bunker center & Air borne Bridge assult Museum center. Stayed at Honfler area, best creapes & Dover sole ever. Love Normandy apple brandy. Then took car & headed E to Verdun with stop over in Cheteau for local experience. Then drove onto battlesite & Church filled with bones from battle alone & then ruins from 1916 battle. Normandy had sunny partly cloudy skies Verdun was cloudy, grey, misty very surreal & depressing, month was October. & we saw Companie site for WW2 surrender visit. Rode in Verdun Dark ride in Fortress center. Very unique Then headed W to Paris, stay at another Cheteau, then Paris then Home. Took trip in 2005, 2006. Wish they had smartphones then, Id send a lot of pics off. If were to do Tour again Id hit London & SE UK for Army camps, AAF bases, Radar posts, CPs alone Then head into Normandy area. Love to shoot WW2 era guns on Range or ride in a restomod Tiger tank. Or ride in a Spitfire 1944 model over beaches.
  8. Dunkirk Review

    Best sequences: In the Spitfires, ditching, the gliding & landing.dogfights & audio FX. Troops being torpedoed Stukas dive bombing. Surreal & Real., & 70MM is the Must see mode.
  9. Dunkirk Review

    Awesome movie, must see in 70mm mode. Good acting, subplots, action& costuming. Movie would have been better had we had meeting in London for OP Mercury then slide over to see civilians manning boats & or Allied forces fleeing France for Dunkirk city & beach proper. Best sequences when torpedo struck rescue ship& the 3 Spitfires fighting Me 109s& He111 over Channel. Saw NO RAF fighters over beaches shooting down Stukas plaguing Rescue efforts. Very disjointed. Otherwise A for Special FX, Filiming One for the ages & above Saving Pvt Ryan.
