Reading WWII weekend

The main stop of yesterday was at the Reading Airport/ Mid Atlantic Air Museum for the WWII weekend, coinciding with the 65th anniversary of D-Day. I met up with members of the Fedora Lounge, chatted; had lunch. There was an incredible turnout of reenactors, from all sides of the war. Saw beautiful WWII fighters, bombers and trainers in flight, and thoroughly enjoyed myself.
