WW II Reading Air Show

The World War II Air Show in Reading, PA 
is a very popular spot with history buffs. 


Previously I posted on the flame throwers, 
but today we'll see the vintage airplanes.

On the ground...

I love your post. It makes me want to go to an air show when cooler weather comes along!

Did you go flying? Great pictures! I'm with Luna, it does look like you were riding alongside.

For Mrs. Jim's birthday one year I got her the "Deluxe Package" ride on a T-6 Texan Warbird trainer. It was out of Galvestong Texas and they flew along the Gulf Coast Line.

They did loop-top-loops, flew upside down, etc. She rode up front and got to operate the landing gear.

Her brother was killed less than a month before she was born. He was a P-38 pilot, flying over Italy in WWII.

Wonderful pictures.
They evoke memories. When I was a boy I had a little Spitfire. In the dream world, defeated all the Nazi air force!!
