Drone Views of Pointe du Hoc, Normandy
AIRVŪZ STAFF NOTE :
Contributor Marc Olde Kalter created this amazing bird's eye view of one of the most important points in the initial battle for Normandy, France which commenced on D-Day, June 6, 1944. Pointe Du Hoc has commanding views of what became Omaha and Utah Beaches, the two landing zones assigned to the USA's forces. On Day 1 of the invasion, US Army Rangers captured Point Du Hoc and fought off German counter-attacks, securing the beaches from flanking fire which could have derailed the entire operation.
