The Dakota C-47 is back in the hangar for the winter
27 Oct. 2022
The end of the season is felt… On 13 october, the Merville Dakota association accompanied by Quentin (Fleutot Transports company) mobilized to bring the C-47 into the hangar. We try to preserve the state of our magnificent Dakota during the winter.
Thank you to everyone present.
We remind you that our museum closes its doors to the public on November 15th.
The Merville Battery is a formidable German Army fortification which was located on the Eastern flank of the Allied landings on 6 June 1944.
Bombed several times without success, it was neutralised by the 9th British Parachute Battalion after an assault of unbelievable ferocity. On this completely preserved historical site, an educational trail takes you on a voyage of discovery of the Battery’s history as you walk between the various blockhouses.
