The 2nd annual Mentor West Fly-In gathering will take place at CAFSoCal hangars in Camarillo followed by a Veterans Salute flyover in Santa Barbara. The event will take place over four days with aircraft arrivals starting on Thursday November 11, a mass formation fly-over of Santa Barbara for the Veterans Parade on Saturday afternoon and departures on Sunday.
Saturday’s mass formation will be the largest fly-over for a Veterans Day parade anywhere in the United States. Last year over 20 aircraft participated in the event, including Santa Barbara Sheriff’s Helicopters, a P-51 Mustang, an F6F Hellcat, multiple T-34’s, Nanchang’s, Yaks and a B-25. This year we expect multiple B-25s, C-47s, T-34s, CJs, Yaks as well as other aircraft.
Come by the museum to watch our very busy ramp full of T-34 Mentor and other aircraft departing the airport for this event.
