2017 Attractions

We are pleased that the RAF Air Events Team have agreed to support the Extravaganza with a flypast  on Saturday 5th and Sunday 6th August by the Battle of Britain Memorial Flight Douglas C-47 Dakota ZA947.

The C-47 Dakota was manufactured in the USA by Douglas in March 1942 and initially issued to the United States Army Air Force. In September that year the aircraft was transferred to the Royal Canadian Air Force (RCAF) and served in Canada during World War Two. It was subsequently deployed to Europe with the RCAF until declared surplus to requirements by the Canadians in 1971.

The aircraft was adopted by Strike Command and issued to the BBMF in March 1993. ZA947 is now painted to represent Dakota FZ692 of No 233 Squadron, around the D-Day period in 1944.

This aircraft, which was named ‘Kwicherbichen’ by her crews, was involved in Para-dropping operations on the eve of D-Day and subsequently in re-supply and casualty evacuation missions into and out of forward airfields in the combat areas.
