Museum Month: World War II Fliers Tell Of D-Day Invasion
World War II is an important part of America's past and a military event that left behind travel destinations with historical significance scattered around the planet. Many travelers visit the beaches of Normandy, France, where D-Day, World War II's signature event, took place in 1944. This week, some of those who were there when it happened will share the experience in a rare opportunity to hear what it was like.
On Friday, May 11, and Saturday, May 12, the Fantasy of Flight museum in Florida will present part four of its 2012 Legends & Legacies Symposium Series, "D-Day: The Invasion of Normandy."
Seven of those who were there on June 6, 1944, will share their personal stories of strength, survival and patriotism, interacting with guests in an open forum plus question-and-answer sessions, followed by meet-and-greet/autograph signing sessions.
Fantasy of Flight is Central Florida's premier aviation-themed attraction showcasing vintage aircraft with themed immersion experiences, interactive exhibits, a tram tour of aircraft maintenance areas and more. Hours are 10 a.m. - 5 p.m. daily. General admission is $28.95 for adults, $26.95 for seniors ages 55 and over and $14.95 for children, ages 6-12, plus 7 percent sales tax.
