World War 2
The Great Los Angeles Air Raid of 1942
Saturday was spent at The Great Los Angeles Air Raid of 1942 event at Fort MacArthur in San Pedro. A great fund raising event for the Fort MacArthur Museum - World War 2 re-enactment meets 1940s dinner dance. The uninvited guests are Japanese aircraft.
The great music, great dancing gets interrupted by air raid sirens, lights go off, searchlights go on, anti-aircraft guns go off and the fireworks go up!
Its one of those events you have to attend to really understand. For now this "Great Los Angeles Air Raid of 1942" flickr set will have to do. I put up 65 image. The first 50 are black and white, the rest color.
