2019’s Daks to Normandy… What an Opportunity to Witness History!


The D-Day Squadron made a week-long stop in Connecticut, at the Waterbury – Oxford CT airport, before most of the aircraft flew northeast bound and off towards Europe. The group of Douglas C-47s and DC-3s were to participate in the 75th Anniversary of the D-Day assault in France, during World War II.


While in Oxford, the group worked on large formation flying and did some advance media work with suitably-dressed reenactors who portrayed the parachutists that played a major role just prior to the main beach assault.


Some of our Photorecon.net/ClassicWarbirds.net/CivilAviationWorld.com photographers got a wonderful chance to fly during some of the training, and were afforded some great access before the group departed for places like Presque Isle, Maine and Goose Bay, Labrador.


Here are some looks back at the events in Connecticut, through the eyes of Scott Zeno and Alice Leong.
