Timed to coincide with the 68th anniversary of D-Day, the tour began in London on June 1, in the midst of Queen Elizabeth’s Diamond Jubilee celebration. After visiting the RAF museum in North London and the Imperial War Museum complex at Duxford, where the spectacular American Air Museum is located, the tour moved to Portsmouth. There they visited Eisenhower’s headquarters at Southwick House, the Tangmere Military Aircraft Museum, the Portsmouth D-Day Museum and Historic Dockyards. They then went to Normandy on a Channel ferry, toured all of the important D-Day landing beaches, memorials and museums there, then concluded the program with two days in Paris.
The success of this historic tour has paved the way for future overseas adventures focusing on the men and machines that helped win World War II. We will soon be announcing an even more exciting tour in 2013. Watch for the announcement here!
