Some people in and around the Southern California area (and elsewhere) might be interested in attending the upcoming airshow in El Cajon Ca. Near San Diego. the web site is
www.amsky.com/~cafairgroup1/wog_info/ (http://www.amsky.com/~cafairgroup1/wog_info/)

begins April 30 - May 2nd.

Many flyable Warbirds from WWII including rides on B17's and B24's as well as several fighters.. P47 razor and bubbletop versions.
P51's.. (the Tuskeegee airmen bring one always and a few members are always there)..
Wildcats . Corsairs, A B26 and a B25 were there last year.. much more.

And, if you go around to the restoration hangars ,where the San Diego Aerospace Museum does all their projects - you can see these birds in various stages of reconstruction..

its all part of this great presentation in honor of our heroes living and gone.

should I bump my own thread?..hmmm

meh..one time.

This really is a great show. There are planes from Korean and Vietnam era too.
F86 - AD skyraiders - all these planes fly -
none are dragged to the show..

I've attended this one a number of times, and it definitely has more of a WWII flavor than most airshows. I'll be there, with my kids, indoctrinating them properly.

cheers

Nuts, I'm in Texas & can't go http://ubbxforums.ubi.com/infopop/emoticons/icon_frown.gif. Take pics & load the film right. My brother misloaded the camera and boy was that bad. One of the birds was the last one flying and a couple of months later she crashed & was a complete loss. Needless to say I do the photos now http://ubbxforums.ubi.com/images/smiley/59.gif

Hey fellers..

This would be a good place for an IL2 T-shirt maybe.. Ive gotta get one of those made soon.

Horseback - I think I read one of those generic "where do you live" post that you are so.cal... yes it is decidedly WWII

icrash - the B17 Texas Raiders is a regular here - a member of the recently renamed Commemorative air Force CAF.

anyone else in the area? its at the end of this month.

in case anyone is interested ..it is pronounced Gill (like gills on a fish) espy (like the ESPN award?) Gillespie ..
I dunno - it lookes like Gillus-Pie
