AMERICAN DREAM TAKES FLIGHT AT WWII WEEKEND

If your personal "American Dream" includes actually taking the controls of a classic warbird, you are not going to want to miss the 29th Annual WWII Weekend.

That's because the Airshow and Warbird Ride rosters now include the Warbird Adventures Flying School's beautiful NP-40N Warhawk, the aptly named "American Dream". This beautiful lady is the only dual-instruction P-40 Warhawk in the world.

But this is not a warbird ride! If you choose to make your dream come true, you will be a student-pilot, performing as much of the actual flying as possible, including the aerobatics, all under the direction of your very experienced flight instructor.

SOP (Standard Operating Procedure): Click on the Warbird Rides bomb link for all the intel.

E-TICKET SALES OPEN

Advance E-Tickets for WWII Weekend are now on sale.

If you have not used E-Tickets before, they are sent directly to your e-mail and you then have the option of printing them out yourself, or simply having them scanned from your mobile device, right at the gate.

LOOKING FOR A GREAT PRESENT FOR A BIG OCCASION THIS COMING YEAR?

Last minute (or belated) Christmas present, birthday, anniversary, graduation, Valentines day - what ever the season or reason, we have you covered. How about a ride aboard any one of a dozen different warbirds at this year's WWII Weekend? And no TSA lines and screening to endure, either!

The 2019 WWII Weekend Ride Pages are posted and we have a fantastic selection of rare WWII aircraft from which to choose. These range from the mighty B-29 "Superfortress" heavy bomber to a tiny PT-29 "Cornell", open-cockpit primary trainer, and  almost every category of aircraft in between. Or perhaps you just want to treat yourself - after all, you deserve it.

If you choose either the B-29 "Superfortress" or the B-24 "Liberator", the CAF is taking reservations right now on their website, so don't wait, as they may sell out before you make your choice.

Reservations for  the SBD-5 "Dauntless", SB2C-5 "Helldiver", C-45F "Expeditor",  C-47 "Skytrain", P-51D Mustang, B-25J "Mitchell", and B17G "Flying Fortress" will be taken by MAAM staff beginning on April 1st, so don't be an April Fool and forget to call!

The MAAM PT-19 "Cornell" and SNJ-4B "Texan" trainer rides will be sold only at the show, first come first choice.

You can get all the info you need by tapping the Warbird Rides bomb link and following the individual "Prices - Details - Schedules" link for each plane. 

ANOTHER BOMB LINK RE-ARMED - AIRSHOW ROSTER!

MAAM is excited to announce another first for the aerial lineup at the 2019 WWII Weekend.  The fabulous Mitsubishi A6M2 "Zero" will be among the nearly 50 warbirds in attendance at the show.  The 'Last Samurai'  is one of the rarest birds flying, so don't miss your chance to see the plane our pilots called the "Zeke" tussling  with a Wildcat, Warhawk, Corsair, or Kingcobra in the sky above Reading in June.  Tap the Airshow Roster bomb link for all the intel.

SPECIAL VIP GUESTS ANNOUNCED

The Special Guest Roster for the 29th Anniversary WWII Weekend has been uploaded.  More than thirty WWII veterans will be on hand for you to meet, speak with, and hear as they relate their wartime experiences and fascinating stories on stage during the weekend.  Check the roster (third bomb link on the right) for photos, details of their service, and which days each guest is planning to attend .  As they have been for the past three decades, these members of the "Greatest Generation" are the heart and soul of MAAM'S World War II Weekend.  You will also find their more detailed biographies in the WWII Weekend Show Program, so be sure to pick one up at the show.

GET "LIBERATED" AT THE 2019 WWII WEEKEND !

The Commemorative Air Force B-24 "Diamond Lil" will attend the Mid Atlantic Air Museum's 29th annual World War II Weekend June 7-8-9, 2019.  The B-24 is now under signed contract for the event according to Museum President Russ Strine.  The newly refurbished B-24 will also be conducting rides at the event in Reading, PA along with returning CAF B-29 "FIFI" and C-45 Expediter, which are also now under contract to attend the event."

SOME BOMB LINKS NOT WORKING?

No, they aren't duds - just temporarily disarmed until they are ready for the 2019 World War II Weekend. We'll start "re-arming" during the month of December - so check back then, and keep an eye on our Facebook Page for announcements.
