While the big draw is all the WWII era aircraft that fly all weekend. There are plenty of military vehicles to look at as well.
Probably the one thing that really keeps us coming back to the Reading, PA show is all the wonderful people. The re-enactors dress the part even when the temperatures are in the high eighties. Wearing all that gear sometimes really takes dedication. The occasional pinup is a treat as well.
We have to take time to thank all the pilots that fly these vintage warbirds. Without them there would be no air show to enjoy.
Do you like nose art? There are plenty of planes with colorful art on their nose section to look at as well. While you can see the nose art on many of the aircraft photos on this blog here are a few closer shots for you to enjoy from this year's MAAM WWII Weekend.
I was very pleased to see Jim Beasley's Supermarine Spitfire Mk XVIII take to the air.
My favorite vintage aircraft flying at this year's air show had to be the American Airpower Museum's Vought FG-1D Corsair. I can't help but think of the TV series "Baa Baa Blacksheep" that I used to watch as a kid. Did you ever watch the TV series?
And then there are the big bombers. You could see a B-29, a B-17, and several B-25s buzzing around the airfield during the entire WWII weekend. You can even hitch a ride on one of these birds for a price.
Shows like the WWII Weekend often make me think of what it must of been like to live during wartime.
We have many more photos over on our photo website: BG Customs Photography. Most of the photos are available for purchase as well. Enjoy and than you for stopping by.
