    Sounds like a great show, but I'm saving my nickles and dimes for Chino.

    John Melby and Doug Jardine are great guys. They put on a good show and the Sbach is a real beauty. It's a shame the USAF disbanded the C-17 demo team. That was always a highlight of the show. Enjoy it! I'm already committed for the T-34 Gathering, which is the same weekend this year. No brainer for me though, watch airplanes from the ground, or watch them from the rear cockpit. 8)

    It should be good. I am trying out the new lens for air-to-air on Friday. I'm a little nervous using a prime in the cockpit, but it's good to stretch the comfort zone now and again.

    Well again I didn't get to go to the Riverside show, had to go to Arizona and do some home repairs. But when I got back to Riverside, my wife and daughter gave me a years membership to The "Planes of Fame" Air Museum for my Birthday Tuesday, fantastic, I don't have to pay for the Chino Air Show 8) I will be there Wheels, we can meet up mate.

    With the weather being so lousy in the morning I didn't go to the show either.

    I volunteered at the PoF museum so I will be working at the airshow both days. I don't know where I am going to be stationed but when I am certain I will let you know. If you drop in on a Saturday I am there detailing (Read that to mean washing and cleaning.) the planes.

    I know you are a real P-38 fan and Saturday the 7th, this coming Saturday, Planes of Fame will be hosting what I am told will be the last reunion of the 475th fighter group for the monthly event. Planes of Fame also intends to fly their P-38 as part of the monthly event.

    Barring any unforeseen circumstances I will be there for this event.
