DC3 Airways will be re-enacting the airborne component of the Rhine river assault of March 1945, the
last natural barrier between the western allies and Germany.

package to add immersion and visuals to the event. Airfields have been put back to WW2 layouts in some
cases with a myriad of vehicles, static aircraft, aircrew, buildings and tents.
