D-Day Squadron | DC-3 Society


The D-Day Squadron, a division of the Tunison Foundation, is a non-profit 501(c)(3) charitable organization. Having led in 2019 an American fleet of 15 historic, restored C-47 World War II military aircraft in Europe commemorating the 75th anniversary of D-Day and 70th anniversary of Berlin Airlift, the program now evolves to support its flying display and educational mission further.

The Squadron’s ‘living history’ program takes the compelling story of the citizen soldier to audiences at airshows and events off the flight line to honor these brave Americans and ensure their memory and significance is appreciated for generations to come. The group’s efforts are funded through the generous tax-deductible contribution of their supporters. The Squadron represents the unity of flying vintage DC-3s, their crews and the opportunity to use these flying museums as an educational platform involving youth all over the world.
