UK Airfield Visit

Duxford (Daks over Normandy) – Wednesday 5th June 2019 (Grant Robinson)

Hello all,

My notes follow from the Wednesday of the excellent Daks over Normandy event. It was great to see it supported by so many of our kind and the public too. The organisers deserve a damn good pat on the back and it was a fitting tribute to acknowledge the 75th anniversary of the D-Day landings……never forget.
