I went to the Colling's Foundation WW2 reenactment in October in Hudson, MA. Huge collection of tanks, equipment and weapons. All of the equipment worked, everyone was shooting blanks even the cannons. I brought my Canon 7D and 70-200 F4L. I will definitely be going back next year. BTW the old guy on the M2 on the Sherman had the biggest grin I've ever seen.

Very realistic looking reenactment. Looks like they were firing off a few rounds (blanks, I hope).
Great captures on your part.

Nice set of shots! I've been to a reenactment, but without as much variety as you had there.

I love the photos. Other than the fact that everything is so clean, it all looks very realistic.

I was thinking of doing some stylized edits to a couple of them. Either maybe a move look or a period photo look.

I think the last aircraft in each set is a Fieseler Storch? Looks like one I have seen here in the UK at Shuttleworth. With the large wings it was able to fly into a headwind and remain motionless in the sky!

The announcers said it was the only aircraft where you have to worry about a bird strike... from behind.:-P
