I had the opportunity to hitch a ride on Boogie Baby a C47 during the October jump school put on by the WWII Airborne Demonstration Team (WWIIADT). the school runs a jump school three times a year similar to a WWII Airborne Jump School, these were the last 4 of the class of 14 needed their 5th drop to graduate. about two hours later the class all received their gold jump wings in the traditional airborne Blood wings ceremony. The members of this class included a medical doctor numerous members of the US Armed Forces and a Norwegian Army Major. The WWIIADT is a group dedication to preserving the history of the sacrifices of members of the US Army Airborne during World War II. Members of this group and their aircraft flew to Europe this last summer as part of Daks over Normandy in which similar groups from around the globe participated in recreating the airborne invasion of Normandy France on D-Day.
