Re: Air Show This Weekend!!!

1. Being that William, the Significant Other, is intensely involved with this, and has been telling me all about it (and other museum projects!) for some weeks, I feel it only fair to help spread the word: This weekend is the annual “Wings of Fame” air show at Chino’s Cal-Aero Field. They will have 24 flying World War II aircraft, including two Zeros and just about every flyable P-47 Thunderbolt in the world, plus many other cool vintage aircraft on display. The Wings of Fame has the largest collection of flyable vintage aircraft on the west coast.

2. Cal-Aero Field is at 7000 Merrill Avenue in Chino, and their website is here, with schedules, maps, lists and pictures of the exhibits… and directions on getting there.

3. Take special note of Williams’ pride and joy, the B-17 Piccadilly Lily: they are fundraising, in order to make it flyable again.
