NWM Annual Christmas Party
Dec 12, 2013
in Swanson Hall
Welcome to the National Warplane Museum
Founded in 1994, the 1941 Historical Aircraft Group Museum, now known as the National Warplane Museum, is dedicated to the restoration, preservation, display, and flight of aircraft of the World War II and Korean War eras, as well as the recognition of all United States Military personnel for their service and sacrifice.
Please remember our annual Christmas Party will be held in Swanson Hall at the National Warplane Museum starting at 6:00 pm. Feel free to bring a dish to pass and an optional $5.00 gift for an exchange. Roast turkey, mashed potatoes and gravy will be provided.
The NWM will honor the members of the Greatest Generation who served their country during the Second World War by returning its flagship Douglas C-47 to the most storied place in her 70-year history; the skies over Normandy. The aircraft, affectionately known by her distinctive squadron marking, Whiskey 7, was the lead ship of the 37th Troop Carrier Squadron, dropping elements of the 82nd Airborne Division near St. Mere Eglise, France in the early hours of June 6th, 1944. Whiskey 7 will participate in the 70th anniversary commemorations by dropping members of the Liberty Jump Team over the original D-Day drop zones. Learn more about the project and how you can help honor those who served at the project website, http://www.rtn2014.org
