This June marks the 75th anniversary of D-Day, the largest combined naval, air and land operation in the history of warfare.
From 1 – 9 June we will retell the extraordinary land, air and sea story through our Second World War collection and three historic sites, HMS Belfast, IWM Duxford and Churchill War Rooms, which experienced first-hand the events of D-Day.
HMS Belfast led the fleet supporting British and Canadian assaults on Normandy beaches, opening fire at 5.27am on 6 June 1944; American fighter aircraft flew from IWM Duxford in support of D-Day operations and Churchill War Rooms was the nerve centre of strategic decision-making during the Second World War.
Join us as we mark this significant anniversary with a week of ambitious flight displays, family activities, tours, trails, special events and more.
Full schedule to be announced.
