Around Home Base: WWII Weekend pt 2

One of the things I find so cool about the Mid-Atlantic Air Museum's WWII Weekend is how intricate the displays brought by various units are. People put so much time and research into the campsites, constructions, and just large amounts of stuff set up at the airfield. In addition to running amok on the battlefield, I also took some pictures poking around the displays. So here they are, bringing the campsite home!

  1. Great photos! It really is amazing how much some groups bring! Did you see the Seabees camp?!? They have 4 or 5 period trucks/vehicles plus that huge trailer and all convoy to Reading. That must be something to see on the highway! Since Cori and I stayed with the Wake Island group this year we helped them set up and pack up. Holy cow! They brought a U-haul full of sand bags, (cleverly filled with mulch not sand!) along with lots of other gear. Hoping we can figure out a tent of some kind for next year so we don't have to drive back and forth each day!
