World War 2 airborne demonstration coming to Frederick

The WWII Airborne Demonstration Team prepares for their upcoming trip to Normandy, France, by hosting FIVE WWII aircraft, including “That’s All, Brother”, the lead aircraft into the WWII D-Day invasion on June 6, 1944.

The ADT will hold a formation flying clinic at their headquarters, Frederick Army Air Field, to develop the skills of the vintage C-47 aircrews to fly in formation and drop paratroopers before heading overseas in June of 2019, the 75th anniversary of D-Day. The clinic will be held Tuesday, October 23 thru Thursday, October 25, 2019, in conjunction with the ADT’s Fall Jump School.

The five C-47s in attendance are “That’s All, Brother”, “D-Day Doll”, “Ready For Duty”, all owned by the Commemorative Air Force, and the WWII ADT’s “Boogie Baby” and “Wild Kat”. Everyone can come, see and touch the aircraft up close and personal. They will be open so you can take a look inside. They will fly so you can see them in their natural element.  And the paratroopers, in their WWII-style uniforms, will prepare for their jumps among the aircraft and jump at the low altitude of 1,500 feet.
