We would like to thank Newsweek for keeping the history alive with this article published a few years ago about the A6M3 Zero aircraft and about our Zero specifically. Newsweek interviewed Steve Barber who helped the CAFSOCAL acquire this rare warbird. Read all about it by clicking here.
There are many, many volunteers that contribute to the Commemorative Air Force, and many of those are members of, and work hard to enrich the Southern California Air Wing here in Camarillo. Few, however, can match the dedication, time involved, and effort in building a strong foundation of volunteers, aircraft, and facilities. It is very safe to state that the CAFSOCAL would not be what it is today without Steve Barber.
As a dedication to his memory, we are posting his memorial video here for the public to enjoy, as many of us have enjoyed remembering Steve. Please feel free to email firstname.lastname@example.org with any additional stories, photos, or videos of Steve that other friends and family of Steve would like to see.
Thank you Steve for all that you have done for our organization and wing – you will be dearly.
