Historic planes to conduct trial "Fly Over" Lake Forest Park

Thursday, May 29, 2014

Historic planes from the Historic Flight Foundation are scheduled to conduct a trial “fly over” Lake Forest Park on Friday and Saturday, May 30 and 31, in preparation for a 70th anniversary of D-Day. 

On Friday, June 6, 2014, Lake Forest Park citizens can gather at Horizon View Park to remember D-Day and view historic planes flying over the City, tentatively scheduled between 12:20 and 1:00pm. The specific hour has not yet been confirmed.

Historic Flight Foundation at Paine Field will be launching a “Diamond Four” formation of rare P-51 Mustangs to honor the 70th anniversary of D-Day. In addition to the P-51B “Impatient Virgin,” a veteran of four sorties over the Normandy beaches on June 6, 1944, the formation will include P-51D “Val-Halla” from Heritage Flight Museum, P-51D “Upupa Epops” from Flying Heritage Collection, and P-51D “Hell-er-Bust” from Boise, Idaho.
