Over the next few weeks, Imperial War Museums will be announcing a series of events for D-Day 75.

They are commemorating D-Day’s 75th anniversary across three historic branches; HMS Belfast, IWM Duxford and Churchill War Rooms, each of which experienced the events of D-Day first-hand.

IWM are thrilled to announce Daks Over Duxford; a one-off event from 4-5 June at IWM Duxford.

Over these two days, mass parachute jumps and flight displays will take place across the historic airfield, uniting the greatest number of Dakota aircraft in one location since the Second World War.

The event will end in a cross-channel flight and parachute landing in Normandy on 5 June, in partnership with Daks over Normandy.

Stay tuned for more announcements about D-Day75.
