In the morning, the WWII Airborne Demonstration Team will showcase skills they've learned in jump school through authentic WWII-era training.  Watch the team jumpers as they make amazing parachute jumps from a WWII-style C-47 aircraft. 

Bring the entire family to Open Hangar Day to see WWII living history displays, military vehicle and aircraft displays and jump videos.  Other displays at the Airborne Demonstration Team Open Hangar Day include vintage aviation equipment, parachute packing, combat equipment and era-specific uniforms.  Instructors and students from the jump school will be on hand to show off their equipment and answer questions about the team.

Many WWII veterans will be in attendance, including WASPs (Women Airforce Service Pilots), who will be honored that afternoon at a wing pinning ceremony for the jump school students.  In addition to the day's activities, all pilots are invited to attend the fly-in, and breakfast will be provided for all fly-in participants.  Transportation will be available to pilots, and lunch, drinks and snacks will be available in the 1940s era mess hall.

I flew with these folks last year and had a wonderful time. They pay tremendous tribute to the World War II paratroopers, plus have a great time doing it and entertaining guests and visitors.
