Man’O’War and SNJ “290” were at the 2017 California Capital Airshow on September 9 and 10.
Although our primary task was to offer the public warbird rides aboard these aircraft, Man’O’War was asked to stand in for another P51 which failed to appear for a scheduled act.
It serves as a testament to CAFSoCal’s professionalism, as well as all our pilots’ skill that Jason Somes was able to run the expected routine with little notice, to the thrill of the crowds.
We look forward to returning to the CCA in 2018 – hopefully, it will be a little cooler than it was this year, and maybe we’ll bring up more of our warbirds for the show.
Bellow are a few images of Man’O’War in action, as well as just a couple of the other aircraft in the show that were too good to pass up.
