Yep. And Oshkosh is coming in August. I'll be there and I'll bring back pics.

Ciao. John

Thanks for the pics. Really nice work. You had several planes flying there that I have never seen in any airshow. Absolutely fantastic.

Great pictures. The P-38 is a favorite of mine, I wish I could see one fly some day. It was interesting to see a Hetzer there. They were actually produced in Prague until the 1960's. The Swiss army bought some in 1947 and used them until the 1970's. More can be found here: http://www.achtungpanzer.com/hetzer.htm

Wish I could have also, but with all the photographer's comments about the heat perhaps it's just as well that I missed it

By the way, did you take the pics, and if so, what type of camera and lense did you use for the in motion pics?

Brilliant pictures BZ, thanks for sharing them.

Don't forget the link at the bottom of the page to his Gallery Index folks - there's more!

Some of the nicest photos that I have seen.

Is that a real Val in the photos, or is is a mock up? The wings did not look right.

No, a guy named Zee took them. Check the links at the bottom of the page. There are more galleries and an email link. I am sure he would like to hear praise and he might share some of his secrets

Nice pic's pompack.

Chino is only a few miles from my home - but I haven't gone to one of their airshows since the '80's (been out to the air museum and Flo's Dinner though).

Back in the 70's and real early 80's - the aricraft did more than 'fly-by's' for the camera...they stunted and staged dogfights and bombings. But now that Chino has been so developed, I'm afraid fly-by's are all they can get away with these days (one reason why I stopped going I guess).

Still and all, Chino is still the Mecca for warbird restoration, I believe they do more of that there than anywhere else on the planet, and their air-museum is top notch.

The reenacting group in those photos - the CHG - are the guys I spent about a decade reenacting with (it's been about 10 years ago now). They have a lot of fun, and are a good group of guys. It's kind of funny, but as much as this forum community knows about 'all things PTO' - they are as dedicated to all things Med & ETO (West Front and East Front), and they have a lexicon of their own for 'things not accurate'. One thing the forum members here would particularly enjoy - about every other year a dedicated group of reenactor's from Japan would come out for a PTO Battle. They loved coming out to California where they could rent real Japanese MG's and all. Barely two in twenty could speak English - but everyone got along well, we all loved it when the Jap's came over to play. One thing about reenacting - it's a bigger history lesson when you're actually exhausted, hungry, and sweating - than reading any book.

You guys are so lucky to be able to go and see these planes and military hardware ...

The only flybys I get are during the monthly air raid test, when a pair of old F-4's thunder overhead.
(I live in Sth Korea at present).
First time, I'd only been in the country for a week, during the N-crisis a few years back ... thought crap!!

But being a Brisbane boy, even the Australian scene is lacking away from Sydney and Melbourne.

Great pics though, nice to see the IJN planes as well as the magnificent Mustang.
