Lawmakers Jump for D-Day Anniversary Practice

80 Years On… A Skytrain Lumbers Overhead Again A handful of congressional Republican vets took a leap from a vintage C-47 Skytrain in Florida, commemorating the 80th anniversary of the beach landings on D-Day. A team of House Republicans is set to jump out of a C-47 Skytrain in commemoration of D-Day’s 80th Anniversary, joined by a delegation to Normandy, France. The team completed a practice jump last April, getting current and consistent ahead of the big day. At the time, it raised some eyebrows since their side of the aisle only had a single-vote majority, and they could scarcely afford to lose one of their own should the jump go awry.
