    For those of you in the DFW area, I'm hoping to be involved in an event at Dallas Executive next month called “L-BIRDS OVER NORMANDY” and I'd be thrilled if you brought a kid to our event...

    If you are a history buff, a vintage aircraft enthusiast, love the military, or just want to spend an afternoon learning something about history, join us on June 22nd at Dallas Executive Airport, home of the Commemorative Air Force's “Redbird Squadron,” for a family-friendly educational time as we make a presentation on the history of liaison aircraft in the Normandy Campaign during the Second World War. We will also share specifics about our Taylorcraft L-2A “Grasshopper” and how it relates to the historical events that took place 75 years ago over France. Lunch will be served for a donation and costumed reenactors will be present to help interpret the displays. This is a “hands-on” event. The presentation will be geared towards middle-school youth and up. Space is limited, so plan to come and get your free tickets today!

    DATE: June 22, 2019
    TIME: 11 a.m. to 3 p.m.
    LOCATION: Commemorative Air Force HQ
    Dallas Executive Airport
    5661 Mariner Dr.
    Dallas, TX 75237

    TICKETS: https://www.eventbrite.com/e/redbird-squadron-presents-l-birds-over-normandy-tickets-61675758855

    We also hope to have a few other planes attend as well, weather permitting!

    The Redbird Squadron is one of the newest CAF units with an educational bent and If you are a vintage aircraft enthusiast looking for a smaller entry-level warbird opportunity, we might be a good fit!
