    The list of visiting aircraft just keeps growing. The canadians are even trucking in the mosquito that there restoring. Should be an absolute great show. If you guys are anywhere near, you should make a point of coming to this one. The last three years have been a WWII buff's dream come true.

    I have heard great things about that show and have been told that it is the best show east of the Rockies, with Chino being best west of the Rockies. I have been to Chino, now I want to check that one out someday.

    I feel the same about the west coast, I've been through most of the midwest and seen all the major shows and museums in Texas. fortunatly I live in michigan buy two great musuems ( Kalamazoo Air Zoo Yankee Air Musuem), an hour away from both of them. The selfridge air national guard base in Detroit has a decent display of jets and the Airforce museum in Dayton is only 5 hours away. I do feel lucky but that doesn't take away from my desire to get out to california.

    Yep, I felt like that before Chino! I am hoping to see some great pics. Maybe next year I can make it out for that show. Camarillo is in 2 weeks.

    You know, up in till today, the only hurricane that I've ever seen was in a very dark corner of the us airforce musuem. Today I saw three burning around the sky chasing an ME-109. What a sight. They are a beautiful little airplane.
