"Airborne Experience"

We are now able to offer a new "ride-along" Airborne experience. Individuals will be allowed to go "Airborne" along with jump team members on a C47 flight.  Hear and feel what it's like to ride in a WWII vintage aircraft and watch the troops dressed in WWII uniforms and equipment "Stand Up & hook Up".

13th Troop Carrier Squadron Reunion


As a part of the 13th Troop Carrier Squadron Reunion (aka, the"Thirsty 13th") held in Fort Worth, TX, the C-47s "Southern Cross" and "Sky King", along with the B-25 "Pacific Prowler" flew up to the WWII Frederick Army Air Field in Frederick, OK to meet with another of their members who couldn't make the trip to Fort Worth, Karl Peters.  The WWII Airborne Demonstration Team hosted a lunch for the 13th veterans at our headquarters hangar where we base our C-47 "Boogie Baby".  We had a great time visiting with the veterans over lunch and showing them around.  Here are a few pictures:
