This will be my first time attending. From what I've seen on the net, this is one of the granddaddy air shows for warbirds in southern California.

Ok, who's going?

When I was still working in NorCal I went to the airbase by Sacramento's air show. I have thousands of slides from those days.
Never went to any in SoCal.

I believe the Sacramento show is really big.

I was there on both Saturday and Sunday. Saturday was a scorcher. First time in I don't know how many years there was no marine layer in the morning. In the morning, it is usually pretty overcast in general. Good example is just look at this morning.

The show was okay. There were some snafus. I felt that it was pretty anti-climatic after the Hertiage flight.

Also, since this was a tribute to the Mighty 8th would have been kewl to see maybe the FW 190 chasing the B17 and then a P51 come in and engage. Kind of like what they do for the Korean War Enactment. Or maybe would have been nice to see two P51s flying next to the B17.

Those are just my two thoughts.

This was my first PoF show. I was expecting to see some P-51s flying in formation with the B-17s, but it didn't happen. That would have been a great photo op.

Over all I thought the show was pretty good.

Those are nice shots, I haven't been to a proper air show in forever.
