81st Troop Carrier Squadron,
436th Troop Carrier Group


Recently we have started researching and working towards portraying a C-47 air crew of the 81st Troop Carrier Squadron.

The 81st Troop Carrier Squadron flew in Operations Overlord, Dragoon, Market-Garden, and Varsity. The squadron also flew multiple supply missions throughout their time in Europe.

Be sure to check back for updates!
