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/
Here are some photos taken by Mark Loper who gave us permission to share
A recent Man O’ War rider had the means to video his once-in-a-lifetime experience and gave us permission to share – enjoy!
This past Saturday, August 31st, 2019, we held our most recent aircraft presentation: World War II beings – the 80th anniversary of the start of World War II.
The focus of our presentation was the the airplane that started a pilot’s training: The SNJ Texan. Here is that presentation recorded and preserved.
Air Show update: Success!
If you were there, then you probably had a blast – and if you missed it, then try to come next year for sure! No one got hurt, the temperatures stayed low, and everyone had fun = success.
Thank you to all the volunteers who helped out – and Thank You to everyone who came out to watch
