D-Day Squadron 2024 Legacy Tour

To mark the 80th anniversary of Operation Overlord, the D-Day Squadron returns to the skies of Duxford following the sell-out Daks Over Duxford event in 2019 for the historic D-Day 75 commemorations.

The drama will build on Saturday 1 June with an aerial spectacle of dynamic flypasts and a mass parachute drop over historic Duxford airfield. As Sunday 2 June dawns, the full fleet will begin their journey over to Cherbourg, with a grand parade over IWM Duxford on the second day of the air show, as they head out to continue their commemorative flight.

This epic Second World War mass flight display will bring the extraordinary story of the D-Day landings to life in the air at Duxford Summer Air Show. Whilst on the ground, activities, living history groups and Imperial War Museums' static collections will tell Duxford's own D-Day story.

Unsure what day to do yet, I’m in London to see Air at the Albert Hall on Friday. So might be easier to go Sunday by the time I get home and in bed

The Rafale Instagram post only mentions Saturday for the Duxford. Plan was to go Sunday. Might have to change that now

Everything is down to display both days except Red Arrows (Sunday) BBMF Spitfire & Hurricane (Saturday) Lancaster (Sunday)

Dakotas seem to be there both days but only a flypast on Sunday where-as parachute drop on Saturday.

There seems to be a discrepancy with the Rafale, Duxford say both days. The team saying Saturday.

I'm in London for a gig Friday night and heading to Normandy on the 4th. Still need to plan my actual itinerary for Normandy. 5 beaches and Pegasus Bridge are a must. Head is saying go on Sunday to Duxford but part of me wants to see the para drop at Duxford

Gary, we visited the D-Day beaches in 2019; if you pm me your time allocation I could help with a possible itinerary. The bayeaux tapestry is definitely worth a visit too.
