Several changes were made to the roster as the day progressed. The B-29 Doc was removed and the Yankee Air Museum's B-25D and C-47D, as well as the already mentioned CAF B-24A and B-29A were all added. Also, although usually not mentioned as part of the roster, MAAM's P2V-7S Neptune is always on static display to gives tours as well.

Make it four B-25s in attendance at the upcoming WWII Weekend with the addition of 'Take-Off Time'.

Looks like the B-29 Superfortress "Fifi" won't be attending this year's WWII Weekend as it was removed from the lineup. :(
