1944 in many ways not the best year; but America and the Allies were making strong headways to winnng World War II.
Here now, we have for years given tribute to those men and women that gave to the war effort. There are many Air Shows and re-enators events that bring us a glimpse of those days.
This is one of those air shows. It did start out not to promissing, the first two days of the three days it was unbearably hot and humid. The last days started out with rain and the threat of more rain. Thankfully it was considerably cooler.
This year was the 28th annual World War II Weekend brought to you by the MID-ATLANTIC AIR MUSEUM. These folks do a wonderful job in presenting the aircraft, vehicles and the re-enactors of
the war. Kodos to those re-enactors for all the effort. Truly they do a outstanding job!

Above is the B-17 built for the movie "MEMPHIS BELLE" . THE AIR FORCE MUSEUM in Daton, Ohio
about a month ago have put on display the real MEMPHIS BELLE. For those that don't know, it was the first B17 to complete the required twenty-five missions. This was almost an impossible task and the plane and crew were sent back to the "States" and did War Bond tours.
See You Down The Road
