Ride to World War Two
Short ride; but a long reach back into history. If in town I go up to Reading every other year. Where ever you are should you look for an excuse to ride, be it from the California Coast to just down the block, MID ATLANTIC AIR MUSEUM produces one of the finest air shows in the Country. They always have a significant array of "warbirds." Add to the flying, the World War II re enactors present the life and times of what it was like for the troops. This year all theaters were represented - American, British, Chinese, Japanese, Russian. These guys and gals put a tremendous amount of labor in setting up the experience for us to enjoy. Not only the uniforms, but the weapons, the encampments, the armor. Hardy thank you for a job well done!

FiFi was there again. The only flying B-29; however there is another B-29 - "Doc" is just about done and would it be grand if next year both would fly together at the show!

Although not a true Tiger, this one stared in the movie SAVING PRIVATE RYAN. It is a composite made on the chassis of a Panzer 4.
