The ultimate immersion in history this summer! 

We are delighted to be working in partnership with Aero Legends on this exclusive programme of flight & photography experiences in the UK and France, during the “D-Day 80 Heroes Remembered” celebrations.

Fly with the historic D-Day machines in dedicated photo sorties, the hottest experience of the year!

2nd & 4th June

A truly monumental experience...

Flying amongst the armada of C-47s as they cross the English Channel en-route to France. Wow! There will be two dedicated photography flights to capture the esseance of this mission... One will operate out of North Weald on 2nd June as the D-Day 80 participants move from England to France. The second flight will be on 4th June as they cross from Cherbourg back to the UK to take part in the celebrations at historic Upottery airfield (the WW2 home to the 101st Airborne).

The exclusive photo flights will be the most immersive experience of the year, as you fly alongside the aircraft taking part in the "D-DAY 80 Heroes Remembered" work-up and drop period.
