I am looking for aerial photos of the d-day beaches I have found a few but not that great of a resolution. If anyone can point me in the right direction that would be appreciated.

Thanks

There are quite a few on TARA- The Aerial Reconnaissance Archive which is now at Welcome to RCAHMS - Royal Commission on the Ancient and Historical Monuments of Scotland
Don't know if they've actually got it up and running yet though. :confused:

Aerial Recon. photos can be a bit tricky to find, many sites claim to have them but send you round in circles trying to look at them.:confused:

If you want archive shots then try here: The D-Day Beaches

Or if you're after recent images then this site is excellent: DDay04.com - 1,200 aerial photos of the Normandy landings locations
