Shuttleworth D-Day Weekend

Post by Professor_M » Tue Jan 23, 2024 3:52 pm

Nine Dakotas are currently listed to appear at Shuttleworth on the late May bank holiday weekend (25/26 May)...
Shuttleworth is proud to annouce that over the May Bank Holiday weekend we will be playing host to the world-renowned D- Day Squadron, who will be starting their European tour in commemoration of the 80th anniversary of Operation Overlord - more commonly referred to as ‘D-Day’. Their mission, in collaboration with the Commemorative Air Force (CAF), has D-Day Squadron participating aircraft from across Europe and the USA arriving on the Saturday, and departing on the Sunday. Several C-47s and DC-3s will assemble at Old Warden Aerodrome for their first event of their 2024 Legacy Tour.

The weekend is designed to bring history to life for all generations, with a vintage fly-in, military vehicles, period reenactors and live 1940s music. Shuttleworth’s open airfield experience will grant the public access to the D-Day Squadron fleet, as well as the chance to meet the crews involved on both days with the site open until 20:00 on the Saturday.

Tickets are limited for the weekend, book yours now! www.shuttleworth.org/shuttleworth-d-day-weekend
