WWII Planes Over Wildwood

If you were in Wildwood this weekend, you would have noticed something very strange in the skies. No, not the crazy rain we had on Saturday, but rather the old planes that were taking over the skies.

This past weekend was “AirFest 2017” at Naval Air Station Wildwood Aviation Museum. The air show included 1940’s tribute bands, tours of the museum, a beer garden and the chance to fly in an WWII airplane.

With flights starting at $450 per person (which is more money than flying a roundtrip to LAX from Philly) I decided to watch the action from the ground.

The planes that were flying around Cape May and Wildwood were the B-24 Liberator, the B-17 Flying Fortress, and the P-51 Mustang.

From my house I was able to see these beautiful planes fly right over North Wildwood. It was something out of the Twilight zone. “WWII Bomber shows up after being lost since 1944.”

None the less, it was amazing to see the beautiful planes flying in the sky. Below I recorded some videos of the planes.

Enjoy and share!
