Join the D-Day Squadron’s momentous journey — the 2024 Legacy Tour — as we honor the bravery and sacrifice of WWII veterans. Your support fuels our mission to fly these historic warbirds across the Atlantic, celebrating 80 years since D-Day. Help us keep their stories alive for future generations. 

KICKOFF WEEK BOUGHT TO YOU BY

We have a few special treats in store for our active members of the DC-3 Society. If you aren't a member, join us and be the first to know.
