Planes of Fame Airshow This Weekend

p-40.jpgI love airplanes. Old ones, new ones, they are all unbelievably cool. And this weekend the Planes of Fame Air Museum holds it’s biggest airshow at the Chino Airport. This is an Antique Aircraft show where you can get close up to many vintage planes you might have only seen in WWII movies. The P-40 Warhawk (seen here) the P-51 Mustang, the B-25 Bomber, the P-38 and just to see how far the military aircraft have come, an F-16.

On both Saturday and Sunday the show opens at 8 am and the flight demonstrations begin at 11 and last until 4. You will see vintage formation fly-bys, aerobatic demonstrations, wing walkers, Reno Air Racer fly-bys and a few other surprises along the way. In between flights you can wander through the planes parked on the tarmac to get even closer views of these amazing aircraft. There are also great food vendors if you don’t want to haul in a picnic.

Great family fun. Or just great fun for airplane geeks like me. Just check the weather and dress accordingly, it can be warm out there.
