D-Day 75 - Aircraft of the Fleet Air Arm

This year marks the 75th anniversary of the Normandy Landings, centred on D-Day 6 June 1944.

Around 150,000 allied soldiers were transported by ships, landing craft and sea boats. The FAA, RAF and allied air forces provided air support with over 10,000 aircraft.

Come and explore the aircraft of the Fleet Air Arm that supported these operations 75 years ago. These include Grumman Avenger, Supermarine Seafire and Fairey Swordfish.
