On Friday I was able to stop at the Mid-Atlantic Air Museum‘s “World War II Weekend” event at the Reading Regional Airport in Pennsylvania. This is a huge 3-day event that comprises of an airshow, re-enactments, talks by visiting veterans and other experts, etc. For the past several years I have had conflicting engagements that have prevented me from going to this event, and I had one this time too, but at least I was able to stop in Reading for a couple of hours when “passing through”.
For some time now I have been planning to build a scale model of the Eurocopter AS365 Dauphin helicopter, in 1/72nd scale (since all my models are in that scale). Given that I regularly spend time in Central Pennsylvania, I thought perhaps I could make the model to represent one of the Dauphins operated by the Penn State Milton S. Hershey Medical Center, specifically their Life Lion Critical Care Transport unit. They operate three Dauphins.
In pursuit of better image metadata I always try to tag my Twitter and Instagram posts with relevant parties, e.g., airline and airport accounts. For example, a picture I tweeted a few days ago, shown below, I tagged with the Twitter accounts of PSA Airlines, American Airlines and Manchester-Boston Airport.
I do this to “link” the photograph to relevant entities on the Web. Someone looking at the picture might now have their questions answered better (“What is PSA Airlines?”, for example, in the case of this image).
