D-Day Squadron, part of the Tunison Foundation, hosted a fleet of C-47/DC-3s in the 75th Anniversary of D-Day, Normandy. It was a stirring and eventful commemoration of one of history's greatest turning points, highlighting the memories of those who fought, and those who gave their lives, for our freedom.
Of the planes from the USA, two Pan Am DC-3s were represented in the flight -- Historic Flight Foundation's Pan American Airways, N877MG & Robert Randazzo's Clipper Tabitha May. Here is an exciting video of their departure in the D-Day Squadron for their journey across the English Channel on June 5th, 2019.
D-Day Squadron is also attending the Berlin Airlift 70th Anniversary beginning June 10th. For more information on the D-Day Squadron at DDay 75 & the Berlin Airlift 70th go to ddaysquadron.org.
