NWOC Announces Strategic Partnership With D-Day Squadron

Group Will Present At The National Warbird Operator Conference In February

The National Warbird Operator Conference (NWOC) announced a strategic partnership with the D-Day Squadron, offering the group the opportunity to make a presentation on their mission during the NWOC annual convention.

Momentum is building for the D-Day Squadron as the vintage warbird community continues to rally around this unprecedented opportunity to return 19 flying restored C-47 and DC-3 (the civilian version of the C-47) aircraft across the North Atlantic in late May 2019 to take part in honoring the few remaining D-Day veterans like Jim who are still with us. “We are proud to support the efforts of the D-Day Squadron in bringing these historic aircraft back to where the history actually happened," declared Ann Marie Loos of NWOC.
 
Flying along the original route across the North Atlantic used to ferry aircraft during the Second World War, the Squadron will join with its European counterpart, Daks over Normandy. These groups will create an aerial fleet to cross the English Channel on June 5th as well as participate in multiple events. Events will take place on June 2nd-5th at Duxford Airfield in the United Kingdom and from June 5th-9th at Caen-Carpiquet Airport in Normandy, France.

"It is really great that the industry has come together to support us in a major way,” said Moreno Aguiari, Executive Director of the D-Day Squadron. “Several companies have offered their support and expertise and we are really proud of this. I want thank the NWOC management team for giving us the opportunity to present our mission and for facilitating our participation."
 
In addition to the presentations during the NWOC annual conference, be sure to visit the D-Day Squadron table on February 21st-24th in Tucson, Arizona to learn more about this mission to pay tribute the Greatest Generation during this once-in-a-lifetime opportunity.
