SATURDAY, February 2nd  ~ 10am
Featuring the Republic P-47D Thunderbolt ‘Dottie Mae’ the last USAAF aircraft lost in action in the European theatre of operations during World War Two!

This eye-catching aircraft went into action with the USAAF  on December 16, 1944. It flew 90 combat missions before crashing into a lake in Austria on May 8, 1945, the very last day of the war. Although the Thunderbolt sank quickly, the Pilot was able to exit the cockpit.
The P-47D remained at the bottom of the lake until Brian Kenney and Austrian firm Sandy Air Corps finally raised it to the surface in April 2005.
