The CAF's R4D "Ready For Duty" departed KLNC Lancaster yesterday to start her "Navy to Normandy" tour and you can follow her on FlightAware with the tail number N-151ZE. There are other links to follow as well like Facebook, etc. The wing is selling decals, patches and challenge coins in a set. Fly Safe.

Looks like she made it to my neck of the woods... :drink3:
I'll have to go check her out before they move on.

I received my souvenirs today from The Navy to Normandy tour and they are really nice. The challenge coin is a must for us who collect them.

They left this morning.
Flightaware set up a special tracker that can be found here~

If Facebook is your thing- they have set up a page for this epic adventure.
I'm not logged in right now, elsewise I'd post that link too.

It appears they did an about an hour long short hop yesterday in and around OXC.
https://www.flightaware.com/live/flight/N151ZE
And here's the FB page:
https://www.facebook.com/profile.php?id=61559506193100

The secret with FB is just take in the info you want and don't engage with the keyboard warriors. There are hundreds of aviation/modeling/historical FB groups in my bookmarks and I don't I've posted on more than 4-5.

I noticed they were heading for the Hudson Corridor on Friday, but then they turned around and did an approach into Danbury and then flew back to OXC.

There seems to be lots of folks that avoid Facebook entirely, but they are missing out on some fantastic special interest/historic pages. I belong to several from hiking, modeling, aviation (B-36, B-58, WWII.,..) specific vehicle groups (great way to learn common problems and maintenance tips). These special interest groups are something that Facebook is very good for- don't be afraid :drink3:

I've never looked back from leaving FB. I wish more people would use forums like this that are so much more searchable, organized, open to the public, and more of an archive-like situation, all the while not spying on you.

I agree with you, but for many people now instant posting on social media like FB and Instawhotzit etc., using their phone is all they are interested in. Using a laptop or such to view older tech forum's is not what people want to do.
Even the forum site that are easily accessible on a phone can be a hard read now, as you can tell when people are using their phones, in posts devoid of punctuations, correct use of case, and often are meaningless drivel as they are posting with predictive text enabled and can't be bothered to check that they've actually selected the right word.....

Modern life eh..... :roll:

For those who can't see Facebook stuff, the DFW CAF Wing has an instagram page that is fairly easy to view here:
