Fly in the mighty Harvard with your instructor which is an amazing experience in itself plus, you will have the huge bonus of viewing from the air a six ship group of Daks as they carry out their formation practice. This is a very rare opportunity indeed for both aviation enthusiasts and photographers alike and has been organised as part of the “Daks Over Normandy” event taking place at IWM Duxford to commemorate the 75th Anniversary of the aircraft’s significant role in the D-Day invasion.

Synonymous with the D-Day Landings, more than 30 ‘Daks’ will descend upon IWM Duxford . Over two days, mass parachute jumps and flight displays will take place across the museum and you will have the chance to participate in the event and fly alongside one/some of them
