Im scanning the best pix I've taken at Chino airshows over the years.

As I scan them in, I will post them.

To start with, heres a shot of a P38 at the 2000 airshow. The sky was hazy all day, but with luck, it finally "got blue" when the Lighting took off.

I was just learning how to use a digital camera at the time, and I didnt use a high resolution. Sorry about that.

Heres another two pix of the P38. Its taxing to the runway.

If theres one thing unique about the P38, is its quiet, compared to the P51 or P40.

Ad if its one thing the P38 can do at an airshow that the other warbirds cant do....... is perform a low altitude roll over the runway! And I mean "low" as in 200 feet!

Ok, heres some pix of the P40 that was there.

This was still the 2000 airshow.

As opposed to the P38, the P40 was noisy. Not that I was complaining about it.

Heres something out of the ordinary. F86 and Mig 15. I only got them on the ground. One thing I discovered taking a digital pix of planes flying by real quick....... you need to lead them cause the d**n camera has a lag in shooting the pix!

The other two were just static displays.

I would love to see that P59 get restored to flying status. Such a wonderfull part of aviation history.

I posted these back in June when I first joined, in one of the threads.

Some of you might remember them, but for those that haven't, enjoy.

These were from the Chino 2005 show. It was a memorable show as 5 Thunderbolts were up flying. A magnificent sight.

If theres one thing that you notice when you see these up close or moving along on the taxi way, is its as big as they say it was. Like a truck compared to the little ole P51, P40 or Spit.

wmaxt, ive been using pictures of less than 150K, preferably 120K.

Thanks, I've got some pretty good ones, I think, once I've got them cropped and sized I'll try to post a few.
