    Hi All,

    Reading was pretty tiring this year from setting up in the rain on Thursday to the all day rain on Friday. That said, Saturday and Sunday turned out to be very nice days with the sun sticking around all day.

    Here are some photos from the event:

    The only benefit from the rain were the reflections.


    Some new rockets installed on the Avenger.

    A few shots that pretty much sum up the first two days.



    Panchito landing at dusk (.5 seconds).

    The C-54 between rain showers at night.


    On Friday not a single warbird made a movement and only a handful of spectators passed through. It was just a cold, rainy (awful) day.


    Compare Friday at noon to Saturday at noon...



    Yankee Warrior touching-down early Saturday morning.

    The Dauntless taxiing into position.

    Then finally by the afternoon the blue sky appeared.



    Fifi coming in to land with the Reading pagoda behind.


    Sunday was the best day, it even got quite hot by the afternoon.

    Georgie's Gal, a beautiful B-25 that finished an extensive restoration last year.

    Yankee Warrior leads a line-up of three of the five B-25s that showed up at Reading this year.

    One of the many AT-6s that showed up at Reading (I like the contrail shadow).


    Fifi making two of many great passes that weekend.


    After the show ended the private traffic as well as the warbirds began to head home.

    The C-54 after departing World War II Weekend. Taken from the car on the ride back home.

    Hope you enjoyed.

    My wife and I were there,she was flying the B25 "Yankee Warrior", and I was flying the C47 "Yankee Doodle Dandy", our B17G "Yankee Lady" was also there, the YAF flyables all at the same place for the weekend. Great show !!!
    The beehive hummm of the JT9D and GE CF680C2,the thunder of the JT8D-17,the rumble of the PW1830 and the high ,thin whine of the PW 545A are all music to my ears!
