Wow! I wish I could be there (and to come back to beautiful Holland). I have pictures of some of these planes at a 1985 fly-in, celebrating the 50th anniversary of the Dakota/Gooney. Hard to believe that was 20 years ago....
70 years and still going strong! Fly on, silver bird!

Looking back to 1985:

Great! I'll definitely be there. Is it possible to make sightseeing flights on board one of the Dakota's?  Smile
I already look forward to the formation flight!

Yes Joost, one of the DDA Dak's will be available for sightseeing flights.
Maybe a few others too but at this moment I don't have that info.

I think we have to wait and see Joost.
Personally I can't wait to see the Lisunov as this is a truly awesome aircraft.
