AAFHA Archives: 2020
With the onset of the pandemic restrictions in March 2020, AAFHA's event schedule was severely curtailed. We did manage to participate in a few events under limited participation and display. Below are some photos from those exhibits. Click on each photo in the Gallery to enlarge.
August 15, 2020: WWII Victory Day on the Battleship:
Battleship New Jersey · Camden, New Jersey
It was an honor for AAFHA to be asked by the Battleship New Jersey to participate in their WWII Victory Day on Saturday, August 15. AAFHA had our abbreviated WWII display in the Officers' Wardroom and living historians throughout the ship! This was our FIRST time attending this wonderful event after many years of invitations that didn't quite meet our schedule. We had a fabulous time and were treated like royalty by the officers and crew of the battleship, including and overnight stay in the crew quarters and an exclusive and informative tour of the ship. Thank you USS New Jersey for the invitation and the great time.

For over 20 years, AAFHA has been remembering and honoring the history of WWII aviation. We paticipate in public forums and airshows like MAAM WWII Weekend in Reading PA, Open House Airshows at McGuire AFB, and our "Hometown" Airshow at the Greenwood Lake Airport. We march in the Riveredge July 4th Parade and the SGt. John Basilone Parade in Raritan, NJ, and participate in local Pearl Harbor Commemorations. Our private member only events include our Annual Dinner Dance and Picatinny Luncheon. More recently the AAFHA Squadronaires WWII Revue have been performing for Veteran, seniors and historical societies at various venues throughout the Tri-state area. Here are some photo albums from our long and distinguished history! From the most recent to our ancient past, scroll down the history of the Army Air Forces Historical Society!
