PEACHTREE CITY, GA (January 20, 2010) ? ?Remember Pearl Harbor!?, Rosie the Riveter, and Glenn Miller.  Experience the sights and sounds of the Greatest Generation when the Commemorative Air Force (CAF) Dixie Wing hosts the seventh annual ?WWII Heritage Days? April 24-25, 2010.  The public history event will be held at The Historical Airpower Facility, Falcon Field, Peachtree City from 9am-4pm both days.

The weekend will again feature vintage aircraft, period vehicles, education displays, guest speakers and demonstrations, including mock battles between reenactors portraying American and Axis troops.

A weekend highlight is ?Keep ?em Flying?, a WWII-theme hangar dance featuring the Peachtree Jazz Edition and Vintage Vocals, a trio that reprises the unique sound of the Andrews Sisters.  Proceeds from the dance benefit historic aircraft preservation and ?Education Through Living History?, the group?s WWII history program made available to schools and youth groups free of charge.
