GEICO Skytypers

GEICO Skytypers Airshow makes first appearance at popular World War II event.

The Mid-Atlantic Air Museum is pleased to announce that the GEICO Skytypers Airshow Team — a six-ship aerobatic team flying the North American SNJ-2 — will perform at the Museums 27th Annual World War II Weekend set for June 2-3-4, 2017.

The GEICO Skytypers Airshow Team will perform an 18-minute low-level flying demonstration each day of the show.

“This is an exciting first for World War II Weekend“, said Museum President Russ Strine, “as this is our first ever six-ship formation team”.

The GEICO Skytypers Airshow Team will also “skytype” around the local area all three days of the event.

The North American SNJ-2 is a single engine advanced trainer aircraft. Powered by a 550hp Pratt & Whitney R-1340-56 engine, the Depression-era SNJ-2 was designed to United States Navy specifications.

The Mid-Atlantic Air Museum is located at the Reading Regional Airport in Reading, Pennsylvania. For more information about this year’s event, visit the MAAM WWII Weekend.
