Interesting event at the RAF Museum Hendon.

This week I had the pleasure of being a guest of the US Embassy at an event held at the RAF Museum at Hendon celebrating the “rebirth” of the C-47 Dakota “That’s all Brother”   The C-47 that led the airborne landings of US forces at the Normandy landings on D-Day.


The aircraft was found at a refurbishment yard in Wisconsin and has been painstakingly restored and is now flying again. It will fly to Normandy on 5th June this year and with airborne troops who will parachute into France.


A programme about the aircraft will be on the History Channel on 7th June.


Whilst at the museum I took the chance to have a good look at the exhibits with photos below.


Even the chance to sit in a Spitfire!
