The WWII Airborne Demonstration Team Foundation was formed to honor and serve the memory of the men who fought and died to preserve America's freedom during WWII. The activities of the Foundation recognize and honor all those who served and survived that conflict.
The Foundation serves that honorable purpose through the participation of its members in active parachute jumping in the style of the WWII airborne soldier utilizing an aircraft that actually participated in the invasion of Europe. These activities serve to further the memory of their unbending loyalty to the cause of freedom.
Further, it is the goal of the Foundation to foster, promote and engage in research of WWII airborne operations and military history and to inform and educate the public through airborne operations demonstrations throughout the United States and Europe.
The Foundation owns and operates a vintage C-47 Aircraft that was built in Oklahoma on 1942 and operated in Europe, Middle East and Burma during WWII including the invasion of Europe.
This is your opportunity to permanently remember, and honor your loved one and help build the iconic symbol of US Air Forces in Europe with a Victory Brick.
