4 – 5 June
As part of IWM’s D-Day75 anniversary week of events Daks Over Duxford will bring the extraordinary story of D-Day to life, uniting the greatest number of Douglas C-47 Skytrain and Dakota aircraft in one location since the Second World War.
Synonymous with the D-Day Landings, more than 30 'Daks' will descend upon IWM Duxford on 4 and 5 June. Over two days, mass parachute jumps and flight displays will take place across the museum ahead of the epic cross-channel flight on 5 June.
On the ground, D-Day related displays and activities will further bring the extraordinary story of D-Day to life. Full schedule to be announced. Ticket holders will also have full access to the museum.
Created in partnership with Daks Over Normandy.
From 1 – 9 June walk in the footsteps where D-Day history was made at our three historic sites, HMS Belfast, IWM Duxford and Churchill War Rooms, all of which played a significant role on 6 June 1944.
