The 4 and 5 June 2019 Jumps

The Daks over Normandy team upholds the strong belief that we have a moral obligation to commemorate this 75th D-Day together. We feel it will be the very last chance we will be able to join forces. For what these teams have in common with us is the fact that we all feel history should not be forgotten and should commemorated in a suitable and a respectful way.

On 4 and 5 June 2019 Daks over Normandy will organise two jumps. The 4 June jump will be a mass practice jump in the United Kingdom. The jump on 5 June will be very special. All of the C-47’s participating in the event will fly in formation across the English Channel to drop a large group of paratroopers into an original 1944 drop zone in Normandy. If you want to be a part of that historic and unique reconstitution you can download our Registration Form here. These jumps are open to jumpers of all teams and to all (ex)para/airborne personnel. Beware however of the requirements you must meet!

Up to 20 of the aircraft are equipped to drop the paratroopers in formation. The project team is aiming to invite all the jump teams to organise and plan mutual jumps on 6, 7, 8 and 9 June. We sincerely hope all jumpers and all jump teams share the idea to cooperate and make the 75th commemoration of D-Day into a once in a lifetime event.
