D-ATLANTIC AIR MUSEUM'S WORLD WAR II
BOSCOVS AND REDNERS TICKETS SOLD OUT
The only way to purchase advance tickets is now down to one - come to the Museum Office on Wednesday or Thursday before 4:00 PM. Sorry, no food tickets - only admission. But remember, you can always buy admission tickets, including the Three-Day Pass, at the gate when you enter. See you this weekend!
For Immediate Release
The Commemorative Air Force B-24, “Diamond Lil” will be unable to attend the 23rd annual World War II Weekend scheduled for June 7-8-9, 2013. According to a CAF spokesperson, repairs to the bomber suffered a setback in recent weeks due to the unavailability of specific parts needed to complete repairs in time for an appearance at the Reading event.
During the spring of 2012 the B-24 suffered a nose gear collapse on landing after experiencing a hydraulic failure in flight. Commemorative Air Force crews have been working at an advanced pace ever since to return the rare bomber to the skies.
The CAF B-24/B-29 Squadron has graciously refunded payments to those persons who booked rides through the CAF website on the B-24 for the Reading event, and offered those effected by the stand-down of the B-24 discounted prices for rides on the only flying B-29 “Fifi” at Reading.
