Title: Ground crew reenacting
Post by: cco23i on June 21, 2008, 01:01:17 AM
Hey all,
     Well we returned from our event in Stockton California and BOY DID WE HAVE A BLAST!!  After traveling 11 hours we continued to get everything ready for the show so by the time we were done we had been awake for 41 hours!  Man I thought I was on a deployment again.  Below are some of the photos so ENJOY!

I am just started to get interested in reenactments and in particular WWII Army Air Corp.  I live in Utah and was wondering if you know of anybody in this region.  Where is your group from?  I do own a 1943 Stinson L-5 and now a 1944 Jeep.

Thanks,
Greg

Greg,
     Sorry for the delay but work has been a bear!  Not right off the top of my head do I know of anyone doing AAF up your way.  In Colorado there are a few as well as in the north west.  I will do some looking and get back to you.

Yes, we actually had "recruits" that were brought in to "train" as air crew and then fly a bombing mission.  Loads of fun!!!

O.K all,
     Well as I expected we are "branching out".  We will be portraying USAAF, ESN and USMC ground crews.  So far we have the B-24 to play with NOW also a PV-2D AND soon to do Luftwaffe if you want.  I can help set up any of the above uniforms.
