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.

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

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...

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