World War II C-47 Flyover & Parachute Jumpers at Founders Day Festival 2019

by Front Porch Rockwall

 

 

At this year’s Rockwall Founders Day Festival, the Terry Fisher American Legion Post will continue to celebrate its 100th Anniversary and will commemorate the 75th Anniversary of D-DAY with several activities on Saturday, May 18, 2019.   These include a D-Day exhibit and a child friendly obstacle course. The highlight of the day will be a Parachutist Demonstration from a vintage WWII C-47 type aircraft, the same model used to drop the D-DAY paratroopers in Normandy on June 6, 1944.  A flyover by the C-47 from the DFW Wing of the Commemorative Air Force will occur at 5:15 pm followed by the Parachutists from the Dallas Sky Diving Center jumping from the aircraft at approximately 5:30pm, preceding the 6:00pm Founders Day Festival Concert on the Southwest Kia of Rockwall Main Stage.   The flyover and jump will be narrated.  For more information, please see the website here: Terry Fisher American Legion Post.
