    HI Rob,
    Mike Rice here. We met at the Tcraft forum at Oshkosh 2017. Just wanted to give you a heads up that the D-Day Squadron is passing close to you between May 21 and 26. They are going to land and base for a few days at Coventry. Then on to Duxford. I am deeply involved with the C-47 "That's All Brother", it is based in San Marcos TX at my CAF wing. I am not traveling TO Europe, but I will be crewing TAB back to the U.S. about June 28. I am not a pilot, rather a Crew Chief / A&P Mechanic for liveaboard repairs...You may see more about the schedule of events at several D-Day Facebook pages: That's All Brother, D-Day Squadron, and TAB to Normandy:

    I'd love to stop and say Hi to you, but the schedule will tight and I am tied to the aircraft with a short leash. I will be with TAB June 10 to June 30 and will be at the Paris Air Show. We will be at Oshkosh 2019 too, so that might be easier to meet again!

    Hi Mike, good to hear from you.
    I'm not directly involved in the Daks to Normandy flights, but some friends of mine are in a Beech18 camera ship (based at my home airfield) that will be taking part at Duxford and Normandy.

    I'll be be at Oshkosh for sure. my 27th!
