Daks Over Normandy

Daks Over Normandy will be the largest assembly of authentic vintage C-47 military aircraft and paratroopers since that fateful day on June 6, 1944, all to honor the service and sacrifice of the citizen soldiers who risked life and limb to bring about the beginning of the end of the War in Europe.
