D-Day Squadron C-47s Coming to Oshkosh From Normandy
June 27, 2019 - A group of roughly 10 C-47s that are part of the D-Day Squadron group that made the trip to Normandy for the 75th anniversary of D-Day are coming back across the sea to EAA AirVenture Oshkosh 2019.
All of the C-47s are meticulously restored and the pilots formation qualified, and the group is slated to include Placid Lassie; That's All, Brother; Betsy's Biscuit Bomber; Legend Airways; Flabob Express; two Miss Montanas; Miss Virginia; Virginia Ann; and Rendezvous with Destiny.
The D-Day Squadron is the American contingent that flew over the English Channel on June 6 to commemorate the quarter-century anniversary of D-Day. In total, more than 30 aircraft dropped hundreds of paratroopers over the shores of Normandy in honor of those who bravely did the same 75 years prior.
