Scott Air Show, Illinois, US - July 7th & 8th

Mon Jul 09, 2007 19:26

This past Saturday & Sunday, July 7th & 8th, 2007, I attended an Air Show at Scott Air Force Base outside of O’Fallon, Illinois for the celebration of the 60th Anniversary of the Air Force. I took part in the static display along with numerous other WWII reenactors/collectors and MV’s. It was an interesting show for me, but was HOT, HOT, HOT!

Anyway, I thought that I would share some photos of the basic BAS display that I set up. I hope everyone enjoys!

The following pics are what I set up first on Saturday morning. Several friends also displayed a ’44 Ford ¼ ton and basic infantry gear.

I had to do a little rearranging due to the heat and its ill effects on some of my originals!

And, finally, Sunday’s display, a little simpler.

Years ago I used to do that event. It pays to talk to folks, as the CAP commander gave me a field desk & contents he wasn't using... You are right - that is a HOT event!
