Frederick hangar Dance
2002 Hangar Dance
Hi Lindy Hoppers!!!
Another Great Re-enactment

Swingin' in the Hangar

The Wings of Freedom Fredrick Air Show was held August 17-18, 2002, featuring an exciting array of vitage aircraft from the collection of the Confederate Air Force. A favorite tradition of Wings of Freedom is the World War II Hangar Dance on the Friday evening (August 16) before the show. This kick-off event sets the tone for the weekend by taking you back in almost every detail to the early 1940s. From the warbirds parked in front of the hangar to the big-band sounds of Swing Shift, the guys and gals in uniforms, "zoot suits", and other period garb step back to a time when swing was king.

The evening began with complimentary swing dance lessons by Ellen and Marc, and then everyone jumped in!

Swing Shift, led by Gary Henson on trumpet brought the night alive with the sounds of the Forties. The event has been well attended and is generally a whole lot of fun. Check the show's Website for more photos of the event; also -- Stan Weinstein's Photos provide comprehensive coverage of the event.
