Wings of Dreams Aviation Museum will mark the 66th anniversary of D-Day Normandy at its first monthly fly-in and drive-in breakfast at Florida’s Keystone Heights Airport (42J) on Saturday, June 5, from 8 to 11 am. Displays and a short program will commemorate June 6, 1944, the largest amphibious invasion in history and the sacrifices that changed the direction of World War II.
A large variety of aircraft will fly in from all over the state of Florida. Bob Oehl, Wings of Dreams executive director, said this event is not only for pilots. “We want to invite everyone to the airport to enjoy a breakfast buffet, see all the beautiful aircraft, immerse themselves in aviation and history, and learn a little about the mission of the Wings of Dreams Aviation Museum,” says Oehl. “Each month we will highlight a different aspect of aviation and airports, historical aviation or World War II history. We are especially honored to have World War II veterans on hand to reflect on this significant day in history.”
The fly-in breakfast buffet is $7 per person with proceeds benefitting the Wings of Dreams Aviation Museum, slated to open to the public this summer.
