To culminate the WWII Airborne Demonstration Team's Winter 2011 Jump School, the Team will be hosting an Open Hanger Day on January 22nd, 2010, 8:00 am-4:00pm. In conjunction, the Frederick Arts Council will host “The New Andrews Sisters” on Friday, Jan 21st at 7pm at the Historical Ramona Theater. They are a tribute trio to the original Andrews sisters who were so popular during WWII. In addition the Council will be honoring all service women past and present and any stateside women who helped with the war effort! Tickets for the New Andrews Sisters will be $7 and available at the door.
Open Hanger Day will be held at the historic Frederick Army Airfield section of the Frederick Municipal Airport, southeast of Frederick, Oklahoma. The event is free and open to the public. The World War II Airborne Demonstration Team extends a special invitation to all veterans of World War II to attend. In addition to 1940’s style military parachute jump demonstrations, historic military displays and vehicles, drinks and snacks will be available in the heated 1940s era “mess hall”.

In addition, instructors and students from the winter jump school will be on-hand to show off their equipment and answer questions about the Team. For those attending, you may also wish to take part in the Airborne Experience. For a fee, you will be able to ride in our C-47 while it is dropping paratroopers.
