Return to Normandy: The Story of Flying the ‘Flabob Express’ DC-3 from California to Europe for the 75th Anniversary of D-day

November 5 @ 1:00 PM - 2:00 PM

Most pilots don’t jump into a 75-year-old, low-altitude, unpressurized World War II airplane and fly over the Atlantic Ocean just for fun. But three adventurous brothers who share a love of vintage airplanes did just that. Bill, Bob and John (aka Tym) Tymczyszyn donned exposure suits and portable oxygen masks and took turns flying a World War II DC-3 from Riverside, CA to Normandy, France for the 75th anniversary of D-Day. Find out more about this long distance tribute flight and what it took to make it happen.

Presenter: Bob Tymczyszyn
