On May 5 and 6 the Planes of Fame Air Museum in Chino, California will be having their annual airshow in conjunction with San Bernardino County. This year’s airshow focuses on turning the tide in the Pacific in 1942. The airshow will feature over 40 historic aircraft performing for those in attendance, in addition to many other fascinating exhibits and demonstrations.
The Planes of Fame airshow is THE airshow to go to if you happen to like anything that flies and has been used by the military in the last 70+ years. The flying collection during the airshow includes aircraft from World War II warbirds to an F-4 Phantom II. Many of the aircraft scheduled to fly are one of only a small number of flying examples left in the world. The Planes of Fame airshow usually has a majority of the flying P-38s, at least one of only a few Tigercats, more Mustangs than just about anywhere else, and this year Planes of Fame has merited a spot on Sean Tucker’s performance schedule. The list of performers and aircraft flying in the airshow is too long to put here and is really better viewed on the Planes of Fame website.
Simply put, the Planes of Fame airshow is amazing. Every year I go, I look at the whole experience as a privilege to see these rare machines flying. See you at the show!
The Planes of Fame Air Museum is located at Chino Airport in Southern California. For more information visit their website at www.PlanesOfFame.org or call 909-597-7576.
