The Dakota Paratrooper Experience

October 31

Have you ever wondered what it must have been like to have been a paratrooper about to jump from the C47 Dakota into battle? Often jumping in darkness, over enemy territory, WW2 paratroops were incredibly brave people.

Throughout the day, one of our Museum guides will be explaining the exact procedures that soldiers went through as they prepared to jump.

From preparing kit while still on the ground to preparing to jump. Sit on the Dakota’s bench seats and learn more about the tension as our Guides prepare you to jump.

The Dakota Paratroop Experience happens at various times throughout the day and lasts approximately 30 minutes. Suitable for people of all ages, the ability to be able to climb a set of normal aircraft to gain access to our Dakota is all that is required.
