April 2021:

Mid-Atlantic Air Museum

Our April program is a virtual visit to a terrific museum in Reading, PA.  This museum covers all air travel & flight.  What fun!  And there is a P-61 restoration project that is worth the trip.  It has just re-opened to visitors, but has a fascinating virtual tour, just for you to tour from home.  Enter here!  Scroll to the bottom of each page to follow the tour.  Enjoy!
