They come to honor our World War Two Veterans, chat with reenactors, enjoy period entertainment, and of course, be thrilled by aerial flight demonstrations performed by authentic World War Two aircraft.

The 2020 event was first postponed and then canceled due to the pandemic forcing the 30th Anniversary of the iconic World War Weekend to be moved to 2021.

Once again, the Mid-Atlantic Air Museum arranged an impressive assortment of aircraft, which will be displayed on the ground and in the air all three days.

Also, at least two dozen World War Two Veterans in attendance will be available for autographs and provide firsthand accounts of their war experiences.

The Mid-Atlantic Air Museum’s spacious grounds will contain Living History displays of American, Allied, and Axis equipment.

Reenactors will be present to provide detailed accounts of life on the frontlines and the homefront.

Period entertainment will be performed by Theresa Eaman, Frank Sings Frank, America’s Sweethearts, and the Forecast Quartet. Plus, Big Band Concerts are scheduled for Friday and Saturday night from 7-10pm.
