Put another successful airshow in the books for CAF SoCal Wing!
Thanks to our dedicated ground crew the Zero took to the skies to complete the wing’s presentation at the airshow.
The photo album appended to this news post has been updated with a few more pictures form Sunday’s activities.
Did you know the Hellcat was the first aircraft the Blue Angels flew (for about 6 months) followed by the Bearcat for about 3 years before transitioning to jets? You can bet there was a lot of interest in our warbirds at the airshow!
Again, we are grateful to all our dedicated volunteers and supporters as well as Point Mugu NAS for choosing to include CAF SoCal at part of their wonderful airshow saluting our active duty and veteran military.
See you next year!

Saturday’s flights for the Point Mugu NAS are in the books!
The wing did a fantastic job, even though our A6M3 Zero decided to be a bit temperamental with a misbehaving magneto. Saftey First! The P51, Bearcat, Hellcat and Spitfire more than carried the load and put on a great show piloted as follows:
Jason Somes F8F
Robert Hertberg F6F
Ken Gottschall P51
Steve Mcartney Zero
Steve Barber Spitfire
Many thanks to all our tireless volunteers for helping CAF SoCal notch up another mission accomplished.
A few photos from the show are appended to this post.

In case you missed our Wings over Camarillo Airshow, or just to see our aircraft bore loud holes in the sky again, don’t forget the Airshow this weekend at Point Mugu Naval Air Station.
Our fighter aircraft and their dedicated volunteer ground crew and pilots are already at the base ready to put on another fantastic show.
There will also be a variety of other aircraft on display, including the magnificent Blue Angels, check the airshow website for details – but who are we kidding? you really want to come see our warbirds again. That’s OK, we won’t tell the jet jockeys…. See you there!
