    I recognize most of those aircraft. ;) Do you have the date for the one in 2012? I might have to make a trip down for it. I have missed it the last couple of years because of schedule conflicts.

    Good pics and it looks like it was a great show with those aircraft on hand. Good luck this July!

    War Dog has quite a history with El Toro. The WD on the tail of War Dog is for Walt Disney, who did some of the artwork for El Toro during WWII (I got that straight from John Collver, who owns War Dog.). He asked me to go last year and my schedule was off to go.

    Here is John Collver and War Dog last year at Camarillo. Ironfly, if your publicity and promotions folks need help with photos to promote the event, let me know. I helped out Apple Valley last year and the Cable Airshow for the last few years.
