D-Day Squadron Participating In EAA AirVenture

Ten Squadron Aircraft Will Travel To Wittman Regional Airport

The D-Day Squadron, having successfully crossed the Atlantic with 15 C-47 and DC-3 aircraft, completing multiple paratrooper drops and a presidential flyover while participating in events including the 75th anniversary of the Normandy landings, the 70th anniversary of the Berlin Airlift, and commemorations in Connecticut, Maine, Scotland, United Kingdom, France, Germany and Italy, announced that 10 Squadron aircraft will travel to Oshkosh WI to participate in AirVenture.

"'Mission Accomplished' may seem like an overused phrase, but I’m not sure what else you can say," declared Moreno Aguiari, Director of Marketing and Public Relations for the D-Day Squadron. "There was no one person responsible for this effort. An incredible number of people came together to fly 75-year-old aircraft to some of the most remote locations on the planet, then attended weeks of celebrations honoring the Greatest Generation and their incredible achievements. Then, they made the journey a second time to return home. But it also goes far beyond the pilots and crews, as that only scratches the surface of the logistical support that each aircraft received during every leg of the journey."
 
"We could never have accomplished this without the support of our partners and donors," said Lyndse Costabile, Corporate and Donor Relations, for the D-Day Squadron. "Discounted fuel, ground handling, FBO fees, flight gear, event sponsorship, marketing support; the efforts contributed by these organizations were as fitting as the tribute they helped to produce. They came together in a plethora of ways with the same mindset and unified purpose like so many did 75 years ago."
 
To gain a greater understanding on how such a monumental project unfolded, and ultimately succeeded in its mission, the D-Day Squadron is proud to announce that a documentary film will be released that covers the events and journey that started in May of 2019 and will continue even through EAA’s AirVenture.
