The company will be bringing passengers over for the event, but is also planning several local flights which will be open to members and non-members alike. Last year DDA received a full AOC (Air Operator Certificate), making these kind of passenger flights possible. The aircraft was built in 1944 as a USAAF C-47A Skytrain and has a remarkable history. It operated from Cottesmore during World War Two, and participated in D-Day plus Operations Market Garden and Varsity. For more information see: www.dutchdakota.nl/en/book-flight/
