Jerry Bruckheimer, eat your heart out:

Using dummy bombs, pyrotechnics and replicas of World War II-era Japanese planes, organizers of an air show plan to re-enact the Dec. 7, 1941 attack on Pearl Harbor.

The 13th annual Wheels & Wings Airshow, scheduled for May 20-22 at Millville [N.J.] Airport, will feature a re-enactment featuring about 12 airplanes and soldiers dressed in period uniforms.

I hear Michelle Malkin will be in attendance as well, rounding up Americans of Japanese ancestry and interning them for the duration of the airshow...

(ba dum dum TSS!)

Seriously though, I guess that it was only a matter of time before we stopped doing recreations of the Civil War and moved on to simulating other great American conflicts, especially with the popularity of first-person shooter games transporting the Nintendo generation to battlefronts from World War II to the Iraqi occupation.

But I do wonder if it's all that good an idea to re-enact wars with surviving veterans still kicking around. Traumatic flashbacks, anyone?
