Be sure to visit the Mid-Atlantic Air Museum at Reading. They have a Martin 404 painted in Eastern Airlines colors, and a Viscount 700 in Capital livery. At one point both of these aircraft were operable, but I don't know their current status. In addition, they also have a Convair 580, which is supposed to be repainted to Allegheny Airlines, and an R4D (DC-3) restored as a U.S. Navy transport, as well as other military and general aviation aircraft. The Musuem is on the east side of the airfield, opposite the terminal.

I grew up around Reading, PA (Kutztown actually – ever heard of it?). Reading airport used to have a decent airshow but I have not been to it for years.

From what I remember there was not a whole lot to shoot there. The MAAM is worth a visit. In addition to what George mentioned, they used to have a P2V and they were working on recovering a P-61 Black Widow from a jungle.

Let us know what you see!

PS. Kutztown has a little airport too! You’ll see lot’s of cool stuff like Cessnas, Pipers and gliders  Smile/happy/getting dizzy

Great! I will see what I can find, hopefully the weather is good when I get out there.

I would still like to know what regional airlines fly into reading and Lancaster.

Also, any of you know some other little airports to spot at around that area?

I can't help you with the regional airlines, but I can guess that it's mostly going to be the smaller carriers like United Express, American Eagle, etc. Make a quick scan of the arrivals at Reading on flightarrivals.com and see what you see  Smile/happy/getting dizzy

The only other airport that may be of some interest is ABE in Allentown (about a 45 minute drive on some of PA's finest roads). I know that PanAm flies into ABE. There is another field south of ABE that has warbirds and private stuff but I can't think of the name or tell you how to get there (useless eh?).

If you don't mind the drive, PHL is about two hours (maybe less) from Reading.
