    Only got about 25 minutes to run around and take pics before we had to handle the crowds. Here are a few static shots. I'll start with a head-on shot of a private A-4 Skyhawk that flew in. A VERY clean and well-done aircraft.

    Here's a front quarter view.

    We had a bubble canopy Spitfire XIV attend and here's a shot.

    Six or seven years ago we had a disassembled Pilatus P-2 that somehow disappeared. Ed Maloney always SAID it was being rebuilt, but we never saw it again until this airshow. Some old Bf 109 parts were used. They used the instrument panel and the main landing gear legs configured in a different manner. It doubled for a German aircraft in one of the Indiana Jones movies. Here is a shot.

    Syscom and WheelsUpCAVU were there. Maybe more from in here. Anyone, jump in here and post any Chino shots you have. Please. All for this post.

    Here's three B-25s and a B-17 (Fuddy Duddy).

    Here's a beautiful F7F that has been around lately. Steve Hinton flew it from California to Sun and Fun and back, and we washed off the dust and bugs and it flew again in this airshow. What a great sound from two R-2800s plus the superchargers!

    F7F_1.JPG

    Here's a shot of three C-47's together. Two flew in the show.

    Here's General Lyons' B-17 "Fuddy Duddy" that flew in from John Wayne airport.

    And here's the CAF Arizona Wing's B-17 "Sentimental Journey"

    All for this post.

    We had a couple of F-22 Raptors perform. Here's one of them.

    F22_1.JPG

    We also had the Horsemen perform in three P-51s as wella s three F-86s. Here is the Planes of Fame F-86 that flies with the group.

    F86_1.JPG

    Rudy Frasca's Fw 190F (Fleugwerk replica) is displayed at the Planes of Fame and here it is in the airshow. Later, it flew around and harassed the B-17s, much to the annoyance of the escorts who chased him off at least three times.

    Fw190_1.JPG

    Here's two of the five P-47s that flew with a third peeking out from the cowling on the right.

    3_P47s.JPG

    Here's one a bit closer.

    All for this post. More later. Gotta' get some sleep and do it again tomorrow at 5:00 am.

    My turn. Here's the first of "many" I will be posting.

    Unlike in previous years where I did most of my shooting using video, I finally had a good DSLR camera. These first two are of the CAF B17G "Sentimental Journey"

    Enjoy! DSC_0125.JPG DSC_0122.JPG

    Nice thread, Greg.

    There was a Japanese photographer who visited Chino Airshow every year about ten years ago in our local forum.
    I don't know his true name but his nickname Zero-sen Mania.
    If you should happen to know who he is, I would greatly appreciate if you should tell him to join this forum.
    He was a great collector of the Zero equipments as well as a brilliant photographer.
    He knows me as Shinpachi too.

    Thank you very much!

    If I see him, I'll tell him, Shinpachi. I know him by sight.

    Greg, the P-47D, Hun Hunter XVII, is from Seveirville, TN. The gentleman's first name is Neil, I don't know what his last name is. But he also owns Wascally Wabbit, and a A-1D Skyraider.
