World War II Weekend – The Americans (post 2 of 4)

Last month, The Reading Airport hosted the 24th annual World War II Weekend. It was presented by the Mid-Atlantic Air Museum of Reading, PA. There were all types of WWII aircraft, vehicles, military personnel and reenactments throughout the weekend. There had to be several thousand attendees. This, of course, creates all types of challenges as a photographer. However, I think I was able to do a reasonably decent job of keeping the spectators out of the images. I decided I would break this post into four series [The Aircraft, The Americans (one & two) and Behind Enemy Lines]. Enjoy!

      Neil, Thanks so very much! It was a fun series. We are going to try to get to DC before the end of the summer. You mentioned about coming up to Allentown. If do, let us know. I have not been to Sri Lanka. I would like to talk to you about it. Thanks again for your very kind comments. Frank

    It’s hard to believe that the images are contemporary. The faces have a timeless quality about them.
