2010 Dixie Wing WWII Heritage Days
The Commemorative Air Force
presents their 8th WWII Heritage Days at their home base at
Peachtree City Falcon Field in
Georgia. These living history days
are an opportunity to show off their
selection of rare WWII Warbirds.
With the very rare SBD-5 Dauntless "Lady in Blue" showcasing the
day. This "Lady in Blue" took off
and made some really nice passes
while the fans watched. Also; on
hand were the P-51 "Red Nose",
Lt-6 "Mosquito", PT-26 "Cornell",
and C-45 Expeditor "Bucket of
Bolts". Other aircraft in attendance
was the beautiful F4U Corsair, Jack
Van Ness's Zero replica, and a T-6
Texan was on hand. The crowd was
huge but they still had a chance to
talk with the pilots and enjoyed
those old warbirds.
A large part of the “2010 Dixie
Wing WWII Heritage Day” was the
fantastic WWII reenactments. A
mock European battle between the
Axis and Allied troops, took place
in a small town shortly after D-Day.
Later a battle between American
marines and the Japanese troops
took place on a mock island in the
Walking around during the day
young and old had a chance to talk
and shake hands with Gen. MacArthur, German officers, and men and
women dressed the era's uniforms
and clothing. When it was chow
time the mess desks supplied hamburgers, hotdogs, soft drinks and
the highly requested "Spam Burger".
This two day event is a great way
to teach the kids what the past was
like. Col. Jim Buckley, Wing Leader,
Dixie Wing CAF, his staff, all the reenactors and volunteers do a great
job making this living history day a
success. Next year bring the kids
and camp out for the day, you will
have a great time.
