WWII C-47 Flying High Again

After years of meticulous repairs, the “Tico Belle” a vintage C-47 aircraft is once again flying high, this time over Florida’s Space Coast. 

Lovingly restored by the Valiant Air Command and Warbird Museum volunteers, the “Tico Belle” once flew in Normandy invasion, Cherbourg, Arnhem, Bastogne, and even the Berlin Airlift. Now she’s flying a different kind of mission as the newest attraction at the museum!

Complete with Normandy invasion identification stripes, the Tico Belle is like taking a step back into American history! Once onboard, you will be able to look out and truly imagine what it must have been like on June 6th, 1944. A day when the freedom of a world hung in the balance as she made her way in the pre-dawn darkness towards the beaches of Normandy; part of the largest aerial invasion armada the world has ever seen. 

Call or email the museum to find out more information about the Tico Belle’s flight schedule or to get on their reserve list. 

The Valiant Air Command Museum is located at the Space Coast Regional Airport at 6600 Tico Road in Titusville.  Our website is www.vacwarbirds.org and our phone number is 321-268-1941.
