Dakota Flypast To Honour Veterans

The Battle of Britain Memorial Flight Dakota will be flying across the RAF Museum to honour the Veterans gathered from all three services.On the 13th of May the Royal Air Force Museum is inviting Veterans of all three Services to join as one to celebrate Veterans’ Day. During this special reunion, hosted by the Museum staff, the veterans will be treated to a full day of events and activities including talks, special films screenings and tours.

The event will be marked by a flypast of a genuine wartime Dakota, as flown by the Battle of Britain Memorial Flight. The aircraft will arrive over the skies of the Museum, from a northerly direction at 1500hrs.

Also as a special treat, there is a FREE programme of music by The Jive Aces swing band from underneath the Lancaster (at 1130 and 1400hrs).

The Bomber Command Association will be supporting the event and will be holding a special raffle. There will also be exhibition stands by The RAF Benevolent Fund Enterprises and The Royal British Legion.

Every year this exclusive day gives Veterans the chance to catch up with each other, reminisce over shared experiences and enjoy themselves in the authentic atmosphere and surroundings of the Royal Air Force Museum. The annual event usually attracts over 500 veterans and with Service men and women joining in from across the country, it is set to be a truly memorable and sentimental gathering.
