Since 7 june 2008 and the ceremony marking the return of "The S.N.A.F.U Special" in Normandy, the volunteers of the association have undertaken the restoration of the interior of the plane with the aim to re-equip the 43-15073 in her configuration of the night of 6 june 1944 when she dropped paratroopers of the 101st Airborne Division over Normandy.

This operation obviously requires money and all donations would be welcome to complete the project

Whether you are an individual or a company you can also help us and join the Legend of 43-15073 "The SNAFU Special".
