Post by ratty »

The 17th of September is the 79th anniversary of the start of Operation Market Garden, and to commemorate the event this year we're flying paratroop transports out of RAF Barkston Heath and fighters out of RAF Westhampnett. The transports will fly directly to Arnhem and then fly south along the road that Allied ground forces took in the operation and land at Kleine-Brogel Airport in Belgium. The fighters will perform a sweep along the Dutch coast, then fly northwest to join the transports and escort them the rest of the way.
