As part of the June 'Daks over Normandy' commemorations the D-Day Squadron are congregating at Oxford, Connecticut (KOXC) ready to set off across the Atlantic this Sunday.

News article here-

Looks like around 6 C-47s including "That's all Brother" are their so far.

If anyone has tracking info can the post please.\

God Speed.
Today's the day the main group sets off to cross the north Atlantic.

One a/c Clipper Tabitha May, is already at Goose Bay and there's a straggler trying to catch up from the west coast.

Nevertheless, looks like half a dozen or so setting off from KOXC later today.
A taster from D-Day +70. Ten DC3s were in for the weekend. On the Sunday, there was a 25 Hercules fly-past, Black Hawks and a number of US governmental large civil jets. Para dropping was taking place on Sainte-Mère-Église all weekend. We had a flight along the Normandy beaches in a DC3 that had actually para-dropped on Sainte-Mère-Église on D-Day itself and subsequently at Arnhem. Some of the many photographs from the weekend.
