Daks over Normandy added to DDAY.CENTER

Daks over Normandy has been added to the most comprehensive list of events to remember D-Day and the Battle of Normandy compiled by DDAY.CENTER.

Certain to be some of the most spectacular events for 2019 - and almost certainly never to be repeated - are being organised by Daks Over Normandy. Probably not since the Second World War will so many C-47 Skytrain (or "Dakota", as the British called the aircraft) have shared the same piece of sky. More than 30 aircraft from several countries have so far committed to the project.

From 2nd to 5th June the Daks Over Normandy event will be based at Duxford Airfield in the United Kingdom, and from 5th to 9th June from Caen Carpiquet Airport in Normandy. Both locations were carefully chosen because of their facilities and their infrastructure and because of their Second World War heritage.
