The Commemorative Air Force (CAF) Dixie Wing, located at Falcon Field, Peachtree City, Ga, will host our annual fund raising event, the 2012 WWII Heritage Days, on April 14-15. Proceeds from the weekend benefits our efforts in preserving and operating historic military aircraft and "Education Through Living History" program.
Gates open Saturday and Sunday at 9:00 AM with the public event running to 4:00 PM. We bring together re-enactors, WWII vehicles, vintage aircraft and exhibits as a living history experience for the entire family.
Take a look at this video of the ETO battle on YouTube from last year http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=CTT7uk5-7Hs (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=CTT7uk5-7Hs)
Saturday night will feature our popular ?Keep ?em Flying? Swing Dance, a WWII-theme hangar dance featuring the Peachtree Jazz Edition along with many people comming in period dress and uniforms.
Sunday morning will begin with a religious service conducted on the hood of a WWII Jeep, something familiar to millions of American servicemen during and since the Second World War.
