Against The Odds – D Day 75th Commemoration

Sat May 11 @ 10.00 am - Sun May 12 @ 5.00 pm

Join us for this year’s Against The Odds weekend and experience life at RAF Elvington during World War Two. Our re-enactors will be here to explain what life was like here for serving Halifax Bomber air crews as they fought to liberate occupied Europe.

For 2019, to commemorate the 75th Anniversary of the D Day landings visitors will see the Museum transformed into RAF Elvington on the eve of D Day. Learn more about what was happening here at RAF Elvington in the days leading up to D Day and how the Squadrons based here were involved in the liberation of Europe.

Joining us will be wonderful re-enactors who will be with us all weekend to explain the different roles played by men and women during World War Two including:

Aircrew re-enactors who will present briefings from original WW2 bombing raids. Crews in full, original WW2 flying attire alongside Halifax Friday the 13th.

The Museum’s Halifax bomber, Friday the 13th will be outside in the sunshine for everyone to see up close and enjoy great photographs of this unique aircraft. Our wartime re-enactors will be kitting up twice each day for your chance to re-create your own wartime pictures and also create family memories of your own.
