Saw a brochure on this at work and thought some of you might be interested. Might be some interesting radio chatter. :)
B-17 Flying Fortress, C-47 Skytrain, B-25 Mitchell, and a UH-1H Huey are all flying in, some are also giving rides if you want to pay for one. Some mock beach landings are planed as well.

Just a quick reminder this is going on this weekend. I posted it kinda early the first time I suppose. :)

I haven't heard any thing as of yet, but I have had much of a chance to listen to the radios much yet this week.

The Blossomland Amateur Radio Club will be helping with this event.
Check the two main local repeaters on 146.72 MHz and 146.82 MHz for our radio traffic.
