The WWII Airborne Demonstration Team scheduled to host Open Hangar Day

Posted

Open Hangar Day returns to Frederick Army Airfield after a two-year hiatus! Guided tours provide a look into an active hangar and jump program right out of the 1940’s. Jump operations will continue as our students seek to complete their five jumps and earn their Basic Parachutist Wings. Air operations begin at sunrise (7:55 a.m.) and continue for two hours - weather dependent.  Graduation is scheduled for 11 a.m. Airborne related activities conclude at noon.

This year we will be supporting the United States Marine Corps Reserve Toys for Tots Program for Tillman County. There will be a bin manned by our members. On Open Hangar Day, please consider bringing a toy that meets the following criteria:

  • un-wrapped.
  • preferably around the $10 or above price range.
  • books are also needed and encouraged! (Children receive 2 toys each. 3 books count as ONE gift!)
  • homemade toys are acceptable.

Tours of our hangar, aircraft, and training start at 0900. Jump operations with our students finishing training are weather dependent and are determined on Friday evening.

All are welcome as we honor the living legends of the “Greatest Generation.”

Press can make arrangements by contacting Paul Parsons, Media Communications Specialist at: [email protected] or 802-522-4679.

About the WWII Airborne Demonstration Team:

Considered to be the premier living history team of World War Two parachute operations, the WWII Airborne Demonstration Team Foundation was formed to remember, honor and serve the memory of those men and women who fought and died to preserve freedom. Like those who served during the war, our members come from all corners of the world, all walks of life and with or without prior military or parachuting experience. We host an immersive Parachute School three times a year at our WWII era hangar in Frederick, OK where students are held to the high standards of safety, execution, and performance commensurate with the Airborne ideals. The Team performs at air shows and commemorations across the globe in support of our vision to keep the stories of the WWII generation alive to inspire others.
