8pm uk time, 8th June.

On the 5th of june 2019 a group of C-47 planes will take on a flight from mainland UK over the channel towards the original drop zones over France. They will release parajumpers in original equipment as a tribute to all heroes who fought against the Germans.

We will do the same on saturday the 8th of june!

We will not only use C-47s but also gliders that can be attached to them. So everyone is very welcome to join us on our virtual memorial flight that evening.

The only allowed plane is the C-47

There won't be a break due to sparse airport density on the island and a long flight over the channel so be prepared, gather all rations and enough beer.
