Battle for the Airfield

October 19, 2014

The Collings Foundation, probably best known for operating the “Wings of Freedom” Tour, runs living history events at is headquarters in Stow, MA.  One of those is a World War II reenactment – this year’s reenactment was the “Battle for the Airfield”.  It is an impressive show by over 300 individuals representing the Axis and Allied powers, plus assorted small arms, armored vehicles and aircraft.

    • That is one of the main reasons they conduct this every year – for educational purposes.
