Yeah, Weather Underground is still calling for an inch of rain Saturday... 75`f is awesome but almost 100% chance of rain from noon to five isn't. Praying it changes by Saturday.

Doc and Fifi...

My friend and I went last year and thankfully it wasn't too warm yet. We had a super time. I would love to do it again knowing what to expect. You can also make sure to stop at the vendor area and pick up standard size magazines.

It is an awesome show. Been to it many times. Well worth seeing if you've never been.

Yeah I was thinking of going up as I’ve been to it a couple times in the past but the weather forecast and knowing how the parking lots will be I’m having second thoughts.

Dang, forecast has gotten worse...

Fords at Carlisle is going to be a wash out as well. Might as well stay home and pull weeds...

I used to go all the time when I lived in PA. They would fly over the Blue Mt from the airport in Reading into the valley at the stony where the house was and do their nostalgia runs. The pilot of the B17 told me it looked like Germany from the air and was for effect for the passengers.
The smaller fighters would come through and show off in the next valley where the bear creek runs and do barrel rolls and all that stuff. It's a great show if it's not to hot and the rain holds off. Good flea market too, expensive but a good time.
The last time I was there the me109 didn't make because of weather but there was a corsair that easily lapped everything during the aerodrome.
I also met Dick Winters there who gave me a green hang-tough stretchy wristband, rode the bus to parking with a Tuskegee airman and found my youngest lad walking around with the Gunny when I thought he was lost at about 8 years old.
The Gunny gave him an enameled challenge coin that he keeps close to him this day wherever he may be and it worked.
I miss not making the show anymore, I always enjoyed the hell out of it. There was also always a pile of b25's there and plenty enough to see and do.

One of the highlights of the weekend for me is the number of military members that they have coming to share their stories. Unfortunately, we lose more and more of them every year. If you have any interest in meeting these people or hearing them tell their tales, go now or you may not get another chance.

I've never been to this. They have a small display at Westminster Regional every year that I have been to but it is not even close to the magnitude of this show. Working this weekend so maybe next year.
