2014 Overasselt - Airborne Droppings by C47 Dakota's
To commemorate the 504 th Parachute Infantry Regiment paratroopers which jumped above Overasselt during Market Garden agaian an unique event took place: 2 C47 Dakota’s dropped paratroopers at exactly the same dropzone.
The Dakota’s had authentic U.S. World War 2 color schemes complete with invasion stripes. The paratroopers were of the RCPT – Round Canopy Parachute Team – and wore reenactment original U.S. World War 2 outfits. So the entire event was exactly as it was in 1944 – it couldn’t be performed better!
