The National Warplane Museum is proud to announce their involvement in the 2021 D-Day Conneaut annual recreation of the June 6th, 1944 invasion of Normandy, France presented by D-Day Ohio, Inc.
From the ddayohio.us website, this living history event is free to the public. It includes reenactment that is highly realistic and educational of the WWII European Theater of operations and the D-Day Normandy invasion. Since 1999, this re-creation of the events surrounding the allied landings on the coast of Normandy, France has thrilled thousands of spectators. The bulk of the event happens within the beautifully kept grounds of Conneaut Township Park, Conneaut, NY. Hundreds of re-enactors from across the United States assemble on t he 250 yard long beach which closely resembles Omaha Beach in Normandy.
It is with great honor that the National Warplane Museum with their C47 – W7, will be back this year to participate in the Seaborne Normandy Beach Landing Battle during the D-Day Conneaut event. The Northeast Ohio Regional Airport, which is owned and operated by the Ashtabula County Airport Authority, has graciously agreed to host W7 during the event and will allow access to anyone who wishes to see the vintage aircraft in person or purchase a ride experience in the vintage aircraft.

Event updates will be posted in our social media, press releases, and our webpage.
