For all of you here that live close to or can travel to Reading, Pa this June for the 4th, 5th, and 6th, I hope you can attend the WWII Weekend Show. for details go the the MAAM website. www.maam.org (http://www.maam.org)

I'll be there as a volunteer this year at the gate and wandering around. Hope to meet those of you that do attend. Just look for the old fart with a BA.net hat.... well one of them LOL, there might be a few others there with the same hat.

Just holler for GT182 http://ubbxforums.ubi.com/images/smiley/16x16_smiley-wink.gif We'll have to have raise a beer to the IL-2 FORUMS and Oleg. If we're lucky and he has the time, maybe he'll be there too. Now wouldn't that be great. http://ubbxforums.ubi.com/images/smiley/16x16_smiley-very-happy.gif

I'll be coming on either Saturday or Sunday! Look for a cardboard sign that says BOOSHER! That'll be me! I remember last year, man that was a downpour!!!

I've just checked my diary and I'm probably going to have to work the whole bloody weekend - I'll see if I can skive out of it...

yep I did not go last year due to the rain. I did get to see a few a/c flying about though. I saw a b-17g fly over the house at very low altitude. man was that thing loud.

I live less than 25 miles from the airport

That would be great.... I missed it last year. The Andrews Airforce base open house is coming up in May I think.

I was supposed to have been there last year but the guys at MAAM said I didn't miss much as Saturday was a washout due to the rain. My wife had kindeystone troubles so I stayed home and took care of her.

This year they'll have to hogtie me to keep me away. I'll either travel from the daughter's house in W.Chester or campout near MAAM.

a washout! There must have been 1200 people there! the rain was refreshing, but annoying. Hopefully it doesn't rain this year. I absolutely must see the Tuskegee Airmen. I was too afraid to see them last year. I was in awe of their achievements. I did manage to take MAAM's virtual B-25 off of the carrier tho!

I should be able to make it this year, given the fact I live less than 3 miles due east of MAAM--no excuse, I hear ya...especially if FiFi makes an appearance!

Also, sometime in early May, MAAM normally has their annual open house sponsored by a local radio station in which tickets are given out for free rides on a B-17.

GT182--thanks for volunteering at MAAM--you guys are great.

Shadowsix! Awesome! I must see you there! Maybe we can plan a time and plane to meet? http://ubbxforums.ubi.com/images/smiley/88.gif http://ubbxforums.ubi.com/images/smiley/88.gif http://ubbxforums.ubi.com/images/smiley/88.gif

Maybe we can get someone to bring their computer down and display FB in the main hangar next to the computers MAAM has set up? It would be quite awesome! Who knows, maybe we can all rally around my "BOOSHER!" sign and tour as a group!

Sounds neat
Would like to take some pictures of the event.
Will have to look into this more.
Any one organizing some tours.
Need a place to plug a laptop into to down load pictures.
Would be interesting to see over FB people.
