Press | Daks over Normandy


From 2 to 9 June 2019 the Daks over Normandy – 75th D-Day commemoration 1944 – 2019 event will take place in two locations. From 2 to 9 June at IWM Duxford Airfield, close to Cambridge and from 5 to 9 June at Caen Carpiquet Airport in France. Both these locations have been carefully chosen by the event organizers for their location, logistics and their wartime heritage.

Daks over Normandy is a once in a lifetime and unequalled event. For never since World War II have so many Douglas DC-3/C-47’s again been assembled in one location. During the Daks over Normandy event in both the UK and France, the aircraft will be on display and will be demonstrated in flight. Scenic flights and parachute jumps will be organised. And just like on 5 June 1944, on the 5th of June 2019 all these aircraft will fly in formation across the English Channel for an airborne parachute drop over the original 1944 drop zones.

During the event we will offer the opportunity to film the aircraft in their natural habitat; the air. On board the aircraft, during all except the scenic flights, we will have space for members of the assorted international press and media. Apart from the space on board the DC-3’s and C-47’s we also offer professional and amateur aviation photographers and cinematographers the chance to film and/or photograph the aircraft individually or in formation from the backseat of a number of North American T-6 Texans. The T-6 Texan is a period aircraft ideally suited for these purposes. Are you interested in the options we offer and the pricing, please drop us a line at [email protected]
