Great show today, but the haze made everything a bit screwy. I am exhausted, but wanted to post some shots from today. I can only say 2 words about Chino...Oh YEAH! The massive gaggle of warbirds had 27 WWII aircraft in the sky at the same time!!!

Thanks guys. I didn't know until this morning that the B-17G "Fuddy Duddy" had a bird strike yesterday. I took a look at my pictures and sure enough, you can see the damage. Must have been a good sized bird to do that kind of damage to a B-17! It's the port side wing, out past the #1 engine.

Ugh, I meant #4 engine...The amazing part is that the B-17 was the tail-end charlie in a 27 ship formation. The bird missed 26 other airplanes before hitting the B-17. I am culling through tons and will post some more soon.

Dan, you would have loved the Corsair action. In the morning, they were making high speed knife edge passes that were awesome. In the afternoon, 2 corsairs were flying in formation. I will get to those. I am going through 2,000+ pictures in 38 directories!
 
I just got back from the airshow.

What a fantastic show they had this year!

Hi lite of the "Korean War" flyby was the F86 losing one of its wing pylons!

WE thought the plane lost a control surface or something critical.

Everyone was glad to see it land safely.
 
Actually, it was a wing tank that separated. I had a friend that caught a picture of it. It was another great show by the folks at Chino and further proof that once you go to Chino you go back again and again. A couple of photographer friends of mine have not missed a show since the 1970s. Another has been to every one since 1962!

Here are a couple of more quick shots. I am editting like a madman.

Looks to me to be on the Starboard side, outside the #4 engine. We always counted from left to right.
 
Fuddy Duddy looks out of place in California the guys in Geneseo who restored it are still a little miffed about how they lost it. Aside from that awesome pics
 
Yes, Wildcat, the P-38s flew together in a loose formation. The pilot of the P-38L with the invasion stripes is not fully certified for fromation flying yet.
