Drop Zone

The 507th Parachute Infantry Regiment's targeted landing area was drop zone T, west of Ste. Mere Eglise. Because of the northern location of the regiment's assigned air-base in England, the 117 troop carrier transports carrying the 2004 paratroopers of the 507th were the last to arrive to the Cotentin Peninsula. The late arrival led to anit-aircraft fire that was fully engaged, and evasive actions by the C-47 aircraft pilots caused a wide dispersal of the regiment.
