    The Planes of Fame museum are hosting their annual airshow at the Chino Airport.

    Last year, a P-26 was flown for the first time in 20 years at an airshow anywhere! It flew with a P-35 Guardsman , P-51 Mustang and F-86 in formation for the National anthem. From there, the show got better and better.

    There is no official show page as yet, but you can visit the museum website to see the collection of aircraft and watch for updates about the show.

    The Air Museum ~ Planes of Fame

    This is one of the best shows that I have been to in my lifetime, and every year is awesome.

    Just seeing the static displays is worth the price of admission.

    Then there's the mass formation that ends the show.... the rumble of 100,000 horsepower!

    Remember that Southern California was originally full of Spanish speaking people and mosty place names are of Spanish origins (Los Angeles, San Francisco, etc). Chino is one of the Spanish names. So it's Chino, like Latino. What is ironic about that is that the word Chino, in literal translation from Spanish, means Chinese!

    I have been going to Chino's Air Show for many years and have missed very few. They put on a tremendous show!

    Year 2005 had five P47's in a formation flight. Plus I was there.

    Year 2006, Evans and I were there.

    Here are a few of the highlights from last year. Every year, something unique and uber-cool happens. Seeing the P-26 fly was really cool. Where else will you see a Zero in formation with a P-51A?

    I got 40 galleries of photos from that show that I posted on my website.

    No Ching I will not ban you for something trivial. However I will never apologize to someone who outright insults me. You need to learn your place and not try and be a moderator. Read the private messages that I sent to you and drop it allright.
