The Air MobilityCommand Museum hosting a 75th Anniversary D-Day Commemoration - This is gonna be big!


Recommended Posts

If you ever want to see two D-Day veteran C-47's along with a host of present-day 82nd Airborne descending on Dover AFB, you need to be here on May 4th! A rare event for sure!

The Air Mobility Command Museum would like to announce a Commemoration of the 75th Anniversary of D-Day. We are paying tribute to those who served, their sacrifices, and the history, with many events planned for the day. Events will include up to 200 personnel parachute drops from modern Air Force aircraft by the 82nd Airborne Division. A most historical aircraft will also be participating and visiting the AMC Museum on its way over to Normandy. ‘That’s All Brother,’ the lead C-47 of the 800 aircraft that dropped two American airborne divisions into France will be here. There will be many historical presentations and re-enactors on the D-Day operations throughout the day, and a swing dance with 1940’s music performed by the “Smooth Sound Big Band” from Milford Delaware following the days exciting ground and air events. One significant highlight will be the planned presence of the two paratroopers who jumped from the AMC Museum C-47 ‘Turf and Sport Special’ on that ‘Day of Days.’

The events will be held at the AMC Museum on May 4th 2019, 1301 Heritage Rd, Dover Delaware, and are ‘FREE’ to the public with gates opening at 9am. More details will be published as they become available. Unique D-Day and museum items will be available in our gift store for the event. Please contact the Museum Operations Manager, Michael Hurlburt at 302-677-3855 or email operationsmanager@amcmuseum.org with any questions.
