Regular followers of the BBMF will know that the Flight’s C-47 Dakota ZA947 is currently painted to represent a Dakota of 233 Squadron during the D-Day period in 1944. It has come to our attention that one of the last 233 Squadron Dakota pilots to have participated in those operations, Wing Commander Peter Bailey, passed away peacefully in Queensland, Australia, on 14th April 2021, at the age of 99.
