The North American P-51 Mustang
2006 is the 50 Year Aniversary for the Air Museum, Planes of Fame!
To celebrate this occasion, the Museum has been working very hard to put some very rare aircraft into the air. They also re-painted several warbirds for this show.
Pictured above in the skies over Chino, Ca is the only airworthy Seversky AT-12 Guardsman. This beautiful aircraft and the Boeing P-26A "Peashooter" were flying with many other warbirds during the show on May 20-21.
The Planes of Fame Air Museum always puts on a first class warbird show. They
pull out everything they have and if it is airworthy, it flies on Saturday and
Sunday. The weather was spectacular on Saturday yet much less than spectacular
The Musuem finished the new P-51A paint scheme just before the show. Also new to the show was fresh paint on the Museum's P-38. "Skidoo" is her new name. The P-38 Lightning was the center of the Heritage Flight on Sunday surrounded by the F-16 and the P-51. Unfortunately, on Saturday (when the weather was awesome), the P-38 had a faulty started and sat out the HF.
What a great line-up and a super event.
Warbirds from WWI to today's fastest movers took to the skies and left smiles
on everyone within an earshot of Chino Airport.
