The Mid-Atlantic Air Museum’s 24th Annual World War II Weekend and “Gathering of Warbirds” is one of the largest events of its type in the world. The show, held between June 6th and 8th, hosted dozens of historic vehicles and aircraft as well as hundreds of re-enactors. The perfect summer weather brought out large crowds of winter-weary spectators.
MAAM’s WWII Weekend event covers a large part of the Reading Airport in Reading, Pennsylvania. There is a flea market with vendors selling everything WWII and 1940’s; from military uniforms and clothing to suitcases, jewelry and toys. There is a parade of vehicles, both military and civilian, a 1940’s fashion show and a radio show. The canteen stage features ’40s-era tribute acts like Abbott and Costello, The Manhattan Dolls, Frank Sings Frank and other pop culture icons of the period. In the evening there is a hangar dance with the big band sounds of Glenn Miller.
