Video Summary

Topics: “Navy Week in Duluth” & “History of the USS Duluth” & “Air Show C-47 Flight”

Description: The navy has landed in the Twin Ports! One of the highlights of the week is the dedication of the anchor of the decommissioned ship USS Duluth, which now sits on the Lakewalk as a tribute to the vessel and the sailors who served on her.

And finally this week we go flying on a World War II C-47 transport, part of this weekend’s Duluth Air Show. The vintage plane participated in the Normandy D-Day invasion.

Guests: Don Rowe, USS Duluth Crewmembers Association President; Capt. Laurence Grimes (retired), USS Duluth 1976-78; Capt. Paul Cruz (retired), USS Duluth 1997-99
