Introducing Our Exclusive Acrylic Display: A Piece of History from the 101st Airborne Division's D-Day

History has a profound way of captivating our imagination, transporting us to moments of bravery, sacrifice, and triumph. At Engineered Labs, we believe in preserving these moments and sharing them with the world. Today, we are thrilled to unveil our latest offering: an exclusive acrylic display featuring a genuine piece of parachute used by the legendary 101st Airborne Division during the historic D-Day invasion.

A Glimpse Into History

On June 6, 1944, more than 13,000 American paratroopers dropped into the coastline region of Normandy, France. This section of parachute canopy was used on D-Day by John Seney, 101st Airborne division, a.k.a "Screaming Eagles". During the invasion, the division was scattered miles away from the landing zones due to bad weather and intense enemy ground fire. An estimated 4,500 of the division's 6,928 paratroopers were either killed, wounded, or missing during the battle. Despite the overwhelming odds, they managed to take many of their objectives on D-Day and complete their mission over the next few days.


This is a genuine piece of camouflaged T-5 Parachute canopy used in Normandy, on D-Day, 6 June 1944. It was retained by T-3 John Seney of HQ/2 502 PRCHT INF RGT, 101st Airborne Division.

Some of Seney's D-Day experiences can be found in George Koskimaki's 1st book "D-Day with the Screaming Eagles"
