WWII Weekend in PA

Sherman (?) Tank

Last Saturday, Kyle and I headed out to Reading, PA for WWII Weekend at the Mid-Atlantic Air Museum. This was a great way to spend the day. In addition to a large air show, with trainers, transports, fighters, and bombers (several B-25s, a B-17, and a B-29), there were tons of vehicles and reenactors. Both of us really enjoyed it.

There’s more photos, including some taken by Kyle.

Several Advanced Trainer Aircraft

Mustangs and More Mustangs

Modern Mustangs

Saturday before last, I headed out to the Ford Nationals car show in Carlisle, PA, about a three hour drive. I didn’t know anything about this until a colleague of Suzanne’s, who has a 1965 1/2 Mustang (though heavily modified) mentioned it to her to mention to me after me buying mine a month or so ago. I met him at the house of a friend of his who has a 1969 (might be wrong on the year) and we “convoyed” out. It was cool to drive out there with them. I had a great time, though the ’69 had to be towed back as it quit just as we got to the show. (Turns out it was a minor issue but wasn’t easy to diagnose.) While the show was Fords of all kinds, it was probably 80%+ (of probably a couple thousand cars) Mustangs.

Of course, I took lots of photos

Junkyard Trip

I recently had the opportunity to spend a morning on a Richard Lewis photo workshop at a salvage yard/junkyard in Atco (in the Pine Barrens in south Jersey). While it may not seem like a great place to take photos, it really is as there’s a lot of details and thinks to “see”. It was a very cool place to spend a morning taking photos and spending time with other photographers. It was amazing how they just let us wander, scrambling over and around stuff. If you get a chance to go here, or on any of Rich’s workshops, I’d highly recommend it. Of course, there’s some photos.
