The location is the same as the last two years but the name has changed. The Voyager Jet Center is now the Lynx Jet Center. We are happy to announce that Lynx, FBO, the new owners, will continue the tradition of hosting our event!
Featured Plane: Douglas C-47 “Luck of the Irish”
This plane flew resupply missions over the Battle of the Bulge in December, 1944 in which it dropped supplies from parapacks as well as from inside the fuselage to the surrounded troops below in the city of Bastogne. It also took part in Operation Varsity, the single largest air drop of troops and supplies during a single day, even to date. Over Varsity it towed two Waco CG-4A gliders full of troops.
Overall, it flew in 25 Fully Combat-Operational Resupply Missions in the European theatre from its base in Welford Park, England and Bretigny, France. It also flew 13 missions in which it evacuated American, British, French and even German POWs. We have records for at least 96 missions of various types, which it had taken part in during the war.
