    For the locals, the Camarillo Airshow 2009 is shaping up to be a great show. I plan on attending both days, although I don't know what time I will get there on Saturday as I am working an all-nighter on Friday.

    Here is the website for the show.

    Thanks. This year should be even cooler, with two P-38s! They are also working on getting a bunch of the Grumman Cats there too.

    Looks like it's going to be a blast according to last year's photos! :thumbright:

    Can't wait to see the this year's shots!

    Wow! What a weekend. Great flying, great friends and some great networking. I have a lot of things coming down the road for me after this weekend. We were all saddened by the news about Vicki Cruse, but knew that she would have wanted us all to get a good show. What a show it was. Having been to this show every year for the last 10+ years, it was one of the best they have had on a few years.

    The CAF Bearcat that has been down since March came back to Camarillo on Friday afternoon. There were 2 P-38s, a Corsair, Hellcat, Bearcat, Tigercat, Zero, Spitfire replica, NA-50 replica, 2 P-51 Mustangs, B-25 Mitchell and a ton more. There was a group of four Nanchang CJs that were providing consistently solid formations, really GOOD formations, including a pass with a B-25!

    Here are some highlights:

    I think I'm going to cry. My college started on the 24th, and so I missed this. Did they display the Mk XIV like the guys wanted to?

    Superlative as usual Eric.

    I do like that Bearcat shot with prop wazzing around, thats a great action shot. If I had taken that, it would be my PC wallpaper for sure. Beautiful !
