The Living History Days Program, presented by the Dixie Wing, is going to be taking the year in 2019, but will be returning in 2020. With the large number of area, regional, and national events related to the 75th Anniversary of D-Day, and the large output by the Dixie Wing members at WWII Heritage Days, we have chosen not to offer additional Living History Day Presentations in 2019. This will allow us to spend time honoring the veterans of D-Day, as we travel to several events, with our aircraft, as support, and as individual volunteers.
Never fear! We will spend time prepping for a new round of exciting Living History Day Presentations for 2020. Be sure to keep an eye out later in the year as we begin to announce what we have in store for next year’s line-up!
The Living History Day program is an educational outreach program created 3 years ago. It allows the community to learn about various topics related to aviation in a hand’s on setting, often allowing visitors to view aircraft related to the topic being presented. From The Greenland Expedition to Hueys and Cobras in Vietnam Combat Zones to the History of Air Racing, the Dixie Wing’s Living History Days have brought the public closer to the story with presentations from the people who lived it or experts in the field.
