"Keep them flying" Support for our C-47 Tico Belle
Our much loved flagship, "Tico Belle" is a remarkable flying memorial to the men who flew her, and flew into combat in her. More than 75 years ago, on the 5th June 1944, at about 2300hrs she, along with hundreds like her at other airfields all over southern England, was at Station 469 - Ramsbury was at RAF Ramsbury in UK as members of the 82nd Airbourne Division boarded C-47's and gliders for the assault on Hitler's "Festung Europa" - Fortress Europe. To maintain and keep these old Warbirds alive is costly, with the significant insurance cost and parts and required maintenance to support these amazing beautiful pieces of history. If you'd like to support our efforts to keep these gems flying please leave your donations here.
