WWII Weekend 2012!

It's here! My favorite event ever, combining two of my most favorite things (aviation and vintage living, that is):

World War Two Weekend in Reading PA

We are going tomorrow (Saturday), since the weather looks exceptional. I'm hoping to see other vintage friends and bloggers there- please do leave a comment if any of you want to meet up somewhere. 

I'll probably be wearing the same outfit as above- my Rosie the Riveter getup, with gray Freddies overalls and blue chambray shirt with saddle shoes. Or I might wear a yellow dress- haven't decided yet!

The star of this year's show (like last year's as well) is the world's only flying B-29 Superfortress. There will also be a bunch of B-17s (my personal favorite) B-25s, P-51s, Spitfires, P-40s, and many others.

This is such a great event- really like stepping back into 1944. You get to see all these things up close and personal too- it is so worth the price of admission. I have been to every show for the last 15+ years and it gets better every year!

Two years ago I was a vendor and had to be there all 3 days- for me that was like Christmas and my birthday all rolled into one. I'm actually kind of bummed not to have anything to do but enjoy myself this year, LOL. 

I'll post a wrap up next week- would love to see everyone there!


  1. Yay! I remember reading about this last year. Enjoy!

  2. Wish it were close to my house, I'd LOVE it! I think the forties were my era~in my first life!

  3. Have lots of fun. We only have one flying B17 in the U.K. I would love to see more. The Mustang is my personal favourite though.

  4. Very cool! I'm sure your kids love building model planes too.
