August 1 & 2, 2021: Greenwood Lake Airshow
AAFHA was on hand again for the 10 Anniversary of the Greenwood Lake Airshow, our "Hometown" show, where we have displayed since the very first GWL show in 2009. We had our extensive Army Air Forces Uniform and equipment display including Homefront, USO, Medals, WWII Bicycles and other exciting original artifacts. Our 1942 GPW Jeep and 1937 Coca Cola porch-cooler were also be on hand for an ice-cold nickel coke in a glass bottle with Cracker-Jack snack for a small donation to AAFHA. Our AAFHA Squadronaires WWII Musical Review performed on the AAFHA Stage, with songstress Dawn O'Day singing the National Anthem and full sets of 1940s songs and melodies, interspersed with comedy skits and banter by Bob Hope and Col. Parisi. WWII veterans, WWII and other era aircraft, military re-enactors and displays, and the Classic Car Show rounded out the event. The climactic, exciting and spectacular NIGHT SHOW, with awe-inspiring aircraft aerobatics, lights and pyrotechnics lighting up the northern New Jersey sky brought a fitting FINALE to a fantastic show!
