World War II Weekend publicity photo

Mid-Atlantic Air Museum will hold its 30th World War II Weekend in June.

The three-day exhibition on the grounds of the Reading Regional Airport in Bern Township was canceled last year due to the coronavirus pandemic.

The event draws aviation enthusiasts and history buffs from around the world to commemorate the war and honor those who served. 

About two dozen World War II veterans will share firsthand accounts of their war experiences and will be available for autographs.

The weekend will feature flight demonstrations performed by authentic World War II aircraft. Displays will include an assortment of aircraft on the ground, living history exhibits of American, Allied and Axis equipment and period entertainment. Reenactors will be on hand to provide a glimpse of what life was like on the frontlines and the homefront.

Performers Theresa Eaman, Frank Sings Frank, America’s Sweethearts and the Forecast Quartet will provide entertainment throughout the three days. In addition, big band concerts and dances are scheduled for Friday and Saturday nights.

A night engine-run photoshoot is new this year and is geared to aviation photographers. Three iconic World War II aircraft will be aligned on the field and illuminated after dark with their engines running, providing an opportunity for photographs.
