The D-Day anniversary on 2019 promises to be an event you won’t want to miss. If you are planning a trip to Europe in 2019, you might want to add a little (or make that a big) side trip to Normandy.
As June 2019 marks the 75th anniversary of the World War II invasion of France, there will be many, many events in the Normandy countryside and on its beaches. One is organized by the Commemorative Air Force Dixie Wing. The group plans to have a squadron of Douglas C-47s lead an American fleet two dozen or more historic, fully restored C-47s to France to fly over the shores. The planes will drop 250 paratroopers to commemorate the day.
The event will honor the citizen soldiers whose bravery and self-sacrifice led the Allies toward the liberation of France and, ultimately, ended the devastating Second World War in Europe.
Moreno Aguiari, with the D-Day Squadron, part of the Tunison Foundation, a non-profit overseeing this effort has shared a short video to help the public understand the purpose and vision behind the squadron.

Of course, even if you can’t be there to support in person, the Foundation welcomes donations to make this event possible.
