This air show took place in Reading, PA over the past weekend.

Finally, I was disappointed to not see the F4U fly, but this is what happened when they attempted to start it up:

Thanks, SpiderMonkey.

This was the first time I've ever seen it in person. Of all the shows I've been to, I've always seemed to miss it, so it made my day that I got the chance to get some photos of my own.

Nice. I'd be interested in seeing what you got.

I was also hoping to see the C-54 fly, but I won't complain. I was very pleased with the show overall.

Great shots man, I'm still working on mine as well, hope to have them done soon. From what I heard, the Corsair had mag problems, it flew on Sunday. Their C-54 doesn't fly, it just starts up its engines to move around the runway.

Thanks, BigDog.

It's good to hear they got the Corsair up, and it's a shame they don't fly the C-54. It would be an impressive sight to see it, even if it's just for a short fly-by.

I look forward to seeing your shots, too.
