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
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.
