This is one of the country’s largest and best WWII events.  Located in Reading, PA, the World War II Weekend hosts thousands of WWII re-enactors (civilian and military) from almost every major country that participated in WWII.  They also have an impressive line up of WWII planes on display and flying throughout the event.  The last 2 flying B-29 super fortresses (Doc & Fifi) will be there this year! There are WWII veteran meet and greets, staged battles and a huge militaria flea market.  If you’ve never been….just go, you won’t regret it.  Check out our Reading WWII Weekend page for more info and pictures!

Naval Air Station Wildwood Aviation Museum – Airfest @ Naval Air Station Wildwood Aviation Museum

Great place to visit even when Airfest isn’t happening.  Lots of hands on things for the kids to see and touch.  During airfest, groups like Stahlhelms bring military vehicles and displays not normally seen at the museum.  You can also purchase rides in some of the WWII planes.

Ocean City Airport Festival @ Ocean City Airport
Sep 15 @ 10:00 am – 3:00 pm

Some planes and helicopters flying, but mostly a static ground show.  They have a car show too, so well worth the trip.  You also only a few blocks from the Atlantic Ocean, so make a day of it!  It’s free and you can come by and say hi to us as we always take the WWII Jeep and award winning Mini Jeep.

Ocean City Boardwalk Aerobatic Airshow @ Ocean City, NJ Boardwalk
Sep 16 @ 1:00 pm – 2:00 pm

Great show over the water between 6th and 14th st in Ocean City, NJ.  Best places to watch are the boardwalk and the beach.  From vintage warbirds to modern acrobatic planes to some more modern jet fly-bys.  Depending on the weather (wind), they sometimes have a parachute jump team as well as a staged air and sea rescue.  It’s free….at the beach…what more could you ask for?
