Tico Belle, C-47, in flight - March, 2010
New paint job. Z8 is the actual alph-numeric code that represented the 84th Troop Carrier Squadron (TCS); somewhere along the line they had her "sister" unit's U5 ... which for years we thought was us.
The Valiant Air Command is proud to announce that one of its most venerable warbirds has returned to flight once again; the C-47 "TiCo Belle." From the Normandy invasion to Cherbourg, to Arnhem, to Bastogne, to the Berlin Airlift and much more, this aircraft was there -- over 68 years ago.
Now, YOU can experience all this history as a special and unique present for yourself, or someone you love. Call or email ([email protected]) us for additional information, or to get on our reserve list and we will notify you of the fight schedule. Don't miss this exciting opportunity when the Tico Belle, returns to the skies with you aboard; complete with Normandy invasion identification stripes.
You will be able to look out and truly imagine what it must have been like on that fateful June 6th, 1944. A day when the freedom of a world hung in the balance as she made her way in the pre-dawn darkness towards the beaches of Normandy; part of the largest aerial invasion armada the world has ever seen.
The Valiant Air Command Museum is located at the Space Coast Regional Airport at 6600 Tico Road in Titusville. Our website is www.vacwarbirds.org and our phone number is 321-268-1941.
