Come join us Saturday December 14, 2019, 11:00AM for our next presentation – Battle of the Bulge and the P-47
Hitler’s last gasp in the West, the German offensive caught the Allies by surprise and achieved initial success. Air power played a key role in blunting the attack, with the P-47 Thunderbolt in a starring role. CAF SoCal is restoring a P-47N. Come hear about both in our next exciting presentation series December 14, 2019.
This year at the Truckee Air Show we were fortunate to have triple ace Clarence “Bud” Anderson come visit with us. Some quick thinking on the part of Tom Newhard, Bud actually signed the ammo access hatch on Man O’War. Pretty cool!
More info on Bud can be found on his website here: http://www.cebudanderson.com/
