Planes of Fame Airshow, April 29 - May 1, 2016 Chino, CA, image gallery

The Planes of Fame Airshow was selected by The Aviation Magazine as the Best Airshow of 2015, so expectations were high as this show approached. Except for less-than-stellar weather on Saturday, the show did not disappoint. Last year's Friday night Twilight Show was such a success that it was repeated this year, drawing even larger crowds. On Friday, the Viper Demo Team put on two tactical demonstrations, with Major Craig Baker really tearing up the sky. The afterburner was especially visible as the sunlight began to fade during "Rocket"'s second demo. Unique to the Twilight Show was the Golden Age of Aviation flight, featuring civilian and military aircraft from the interwar years. This year's flight was much expanded, including more than two dozen vintage aircraft, all flying during the "Golden Hour" of sunlight. One of the highlights was a beautiful polished-metal Lockheed Electra. See our images and read the detailed review on the Best Aviation Website: The Aviation Magazine!
