    The weather forecast says that it is going to rain a lot, do you think that the planes will still be able to take off of the airfield?

    The conditions the past few years have not been good for flying but just to get close and see these planes and friends is a good thing so heading out tomorrow to Va Beach and the show on Sat.

    Rain or shine i will be there both days. They always wait as long as possible before they cancel and they hate to cancel. The planes and pilot safety always come first! I will keep you updated.

    The grass field was to wet for anything but light planes today. Hopefully it will be better tomorrow! We are set up on the second level on the Army hanger side.

    Well as Rich said no flights yesterday for the larger planes but still good to see them. I keep hoping to see the Fw190 in the air so maybe next year. Have to post pics in another thread on what I saw in the German hanger.

    Well Bob as you know it dumped rain around 5:00 pm yesterday. Water standing everywhere. The runway was even soggier than yesterday, that plus some wind gusts canceled all heavy aircraft flights. They were going to try some lighter planes when a five minute downpour shut everything down!!!!! Did you sit in the B-25, during the engine run up?
    In three weeks they will be holding the Flying Proms concert i already have my tickets for that.

    Eric they actually have 3 Fw 190's but I think only one is in flying condition. I will be at Reading so will look for the guy in the German uniform. Where do you think you will be hanging out at ? I know they have 2 Stug III's (not real ones) and a German camp so I will check out that area. Hopefully see you there.

    Here are pics of 1 Fw 190 and the Me 109 in the hanger and the one (190) they rolled out if they could fly. I hope to see it fly one day.

    I should be walking around with my girlfriend all over the place. But I will be wearing a Luftwaffe life jacket. You can't miss you!

    Bob do you know who I can speak to from that museum? I might be down in Ocean City Maryland in August and I would drive 3 hours to Va. I desperately want to fly in one of the German aircraft.

    I don't think they have rides in them. They are not like the P-51's that give rides.

    The 109 and 190 are single seaters. The only planes the Museum offers rides in are the Stearman and the Waco. Visiting aircraft do offer rides.

    Would be something if they did a Ju 52 ride. Something to think about.

    I actually spoke with the director today and I quote "All of our aircraft with the exception of the two rides biplanes are under FAA experimental certification, thus we do not offer rides in any of them (regardless of country of origin)"

    So I am not sure if we will ever be able to fly in the JU-52 at the moment.

    You can get a ride on FIFI (B-29) because it is certified for that but DOC has not been certified yet. So you see that the FAA regs are what counts. When I was in Canada you could get a ride on the C47 that was at the Hamilton show but I haven't seen anything like that here in the states. Don't forget you get a ride on the B-17 ( I and my wife did), a B-25 and a few other planes.

    I was actually contemplating flying in the B-17 this year at WWII Weekend. I have an entire original B-17 pilots outfit... from boots to facemask and everything inbetween, I would wear it just to see what my Grandfather experienced!

    Can attendees ride in the Catalina? That is one of my five bucket list planes.
