Please can someone tell me over which beach in Normandy are flying these A20
I need this for my school project and it is important.
At the page I found it there is no such information.

Hi Vuco

Unfortunately can't tell you much about the beach, but those are B26 Marauders, not A20s.

This is a pic of Utah Beach:

Link to page (http://1-22infantry.org/history/dday.htm)
Now you go try and match them up!
(I would say, "Yes, it would be Utah Beach", but I also tend to "No it aint!")

But, the puzzle continues, I found this image:

Now, where's that second plane??
(Got the image from this Page (http://www.normandiememoire.com/NM60Anglais/2_histo3/histo3_p10_gb.htm#))

Here's another one, same beach:

(Found it here (http://www.bbc.co.uk/albanian/specials/1634_albanian_war_ai/index.shtml), but it's comment is in a language I'm not familiar with....)

But wait, how's this pic from Gold Beach:
http://img.photobucket.com/albums/v668/fooltrottel/GoldBeach5.jpg
(Found that one here (http://www.nationalarchives.gov.uk/imagelibrary/ww2/06.htm))
Could this be the one?

Well, anyways, Good Luck hunting!

(Have you tried Google (http://www.google.com)?)

Dude, I don't know what your paper is for but if its anything less than Graduate level just make it up. Just look at the history channel, they use the wrong images all the time. If you can't figure out what beach that is, how is the professor?

All from same beach, notice the line of craters on lower left corner.

Silence!

It sounds much better to point out some obscure detail on the pics instead of a village.
