Veteran’s Day 2022

Happy Veteran’s Day – we honor all Veterans, living and passed on.   We are open Wednesday, Thursday, Friday, Saturday, and Sunday – come out and visit us! 

To help keep you occupied, here is some history about Veteran’s Day (courtesy of  

Veterans Day originated as “Armistice Day” on Nov. 11, 1919, the first anniversary of the end of World War I. Congress passed a resolution in 1926 for an annual observance, and Nov. 11 became a national holiday beginning in 1938. Unlike Memorial Day, Veterans Day pays tribute to all American veterans—living or dead—but especially gives thanks to living veterans who served their country honorably during war or peacetime.

Spitfire Presentation – Replay

Spitfire Mk XIV Presentation September
10, 2022 – Thank you for joining us!  Here is a replay of that presentation:

The performance beast! That’s what seasoned Spitfire pilots called the
Griffon-powered Mk XIV. With a top speed 100 miles per hour faster than
earlier Marks and sporting 50 caliber and 20-millimeter guns the Mk XIV
kept the Spitfire at the forefront of World War II fighter performance and
lethality. On Saturday September 10th the Commemorative Air Force
Southern California Wing at the Camarillo Airport will commemorate the
82nd anniversary of the Battle of Britain with a presentation on the
Supermarine Spitfire Mk XIV. Weather, operations, and maintenance
permitting CAF SoCal will also fly their Mk XIV for you.

PBJ Presentation Aug 6, 2022

Thank you all who came out to learn about our bomber and support the Commemorative Air Force!


PBJ Mitchell Presentation August 6,

The Tree Top Terror! That’s what Japanese ground forces called Marine
Corps PBJ and Army Air Force B-25 medium bombers as they rampaged at
very low altitudes across the Southwest Pacific from 1943 onward. Given
the leeway by accommodating leadership to test and evaluate different
tactics and armament configurations in the field, that’s just what they
did. Come experience living history as CAF SoCal conducts a presentation
on the varying tactics and armament used by PBJ units as they constantly
adjusted to operational needs and enemy counter-tactics. We’ll also open
our magnificent PBJ-1J, which took 23 years to restore to flying condition,
so you can tour the inside of the aircraft.
