    Here is the website for more info.
    http://www.planesoffame.org/airshows.php

    Admission is $18 this year. Kinda steep, but where else are you going to see a lineup like that?! If you pre-order them online, you can get them for $15. I will be ordering mine tomorrow morning for Saturday.

    This is one show you won't want to miss!

    Are you kidding? I'd happily pay $15-$18 US to go to that!:thumbleft:

    Of course, there's the airfare to get there, accommodation, the body cavity search at the border, etc. :rolleyes:
    Maybe if they let me fly down strapped to the wing of the Sabre or something...I'd be awfully tempted to drop everything and go. ;)

    Seriously, it looks like it'll be great.

    There's also the March AFB museum a short drive down the freeway from Chino. An aviation enthusist would have a full weekend between the two.

    Howdy, folks. Am new guy, Mtr. Bao (pronounced bow, as in bow-wow).

    One of main WW2 aircraft interests is fantasizing about hypothetical dog fight between P-61C Black Widow and Heinkel He-219 Uhu. Any opinions as to outcome? Same kind of set up as between P-38 and Zero pilot in Martin Caidin novel, think it was called The Last Dogfight or something like that. Would be heck of a spectacle, what you could see of it in the dark that is.

    What you say is quite correct, dear colleague. Most of the time, especially in the old days, one would need Norden's help to make a difference in L.A. Now one can even do a run in night-time if you had the desire. Unfortunately "Piccadilly Lilly" is not up to speed yet, but check out web site and contribute to reconstruction now!

    Picadilly Lilly one day will fly.

    But untill someone donates enough money for the museum to build new main spars, that B17 will remain on guard duty at the gate.
