Operation Manna memorial flight 29 April 1995

Post by JPS »

I discovered some slides of a memorial flight of Operation Manna which flew over the Netherlands on 29 April 1995.

Does anybody know the registrations of the aircraft who participated in this memorial flight? One of them was a Canadian Orion and some Ramstein Herc's....

Many thanks in advance!
