If anyone lives in/near the Waterbury-Oxford CT, should be pretty cool to see these all taking off and then landing before they head over seas for NormandyC-47's for Normandy
This coming May 19th the D-Day Squadron will depart from Waterbury-Oxford Airport just three miles north of Oxford, Connecticut on the first leg of their journey to Europe to take part in the Daks over Normandy event celebrating the 75th anniversary of the D-Day invasion. As most readers will know by now from our previous reporting, the D-Day Squadron will consist of sixteen or so Douglas C-47 Skytrain transports, some of which actually participated in D-Day itself. They will join a number of other similar aircraft gathered from across Europe for this significant remembrance. The American C-47s will participate in Daks Over Duxford (June 2-5) and Daks Over Normandy (June 5-9).
