Our Living History Flight Experience is a one-of-a-kind immersive educational program, where re-enactors take you up in an original WWII C-47 to get a sense of what our 101st and 82nd Airborne Division Paratroopers felt on their incredible 1,200-plane D-Day assault. This unique immersive flight experience includes: a mission briefing; a chance to wear authentic military field jackets, helmets, and gear; the actual sights and sounds as the C-47’s engines fire up and you’re off into the blue; see and hear the crew operate their C-47 and paratroopers getting ready for battle; and you actually form up and hook your parachute to a static line! The Museum will conduct up to five flights on October 19th, starting at 10:30 am. This is a family-friendly experience for all ages. The program is about 1.5 hours long and each flight takes 25 minutes. Your contribution supports our mission to honor Veterans and U.S. aviation history by preserving the aircraft and their legacy for future generations.
