Silent Wings Museum and Science Spectrum Commemorate 70th Anniversary of D-Day [AUDIO]
This coming Saturday will mark the 70th Anniversary of the Normandy D-Day landings occurring in World War II. Today, on Lubbock's First News, Vessandra Okaruwa spoke with Tom and Laura about the Silent Wings Museum's plans for this historic landmark.
Many events will be going on at the Silent Wings Museum in the coming days. Moonlight Directions of Moonlight Ensembles will be performing live music shows highlighting music from the WWII Era on both Friday at 4:00PM and Saturday at noon. Also, a new exhibit will be opening in the museum that captures some of the most dramatic moments of D-Day. In addition, roughly 15 minute flights on a genuine C60 will be offered to all for $50 a person. A documentary over D-Day will be played at the top of every hour, and the video is free to those within the museum. Military Vehicles will also be at the museum and free rides will be offered to children and adults, alike. More information can be found on the Silent Wings Museum's website.
The Science Spectrum will be presenting a documentary over D-Day in their Omnimax Theater. The film is 45 minutes long and narrated by Tom Brokaw. Both actual footage and CGI recreations are in the documentary. James Nesmith of Science Spectrum assured listeners that the film does not contain any inappropriate or graphic images. He added "It was really moving. I was really surprised how well done it is, but also, it does tell the story and it does do justice to those involved."

Be sure not to miss out on these opportunities to commemorate the 70th Anniversary of this historic event.
