The Planes of Fame air show is coming up this weekend, at the Chino, CA airport. Amongst many other things, one of the cool things they've brought together for this year's show is three airworthy (original) A6M Zeros! Also on display will be the museum's D4Y Judy (static, but running) and the museum's J2M Raiden (static - though they hope to get it flying again in the future). The show is also boasting 4 B-25's (Doolittle Raid remembrance), P-38's, P-40's, TBM's, SBD, FM-2's, J2F, F3F, F6F's, F7F's, F4U's, P-47, Firefly, Sea Fury, Yak-3, Yak-9, FW-190, Spitfire, Skyraider, F-86, Mig-15, numerous P-51's (likely including an A-36, P-51A, and P-51C), and others. Every year the museum tries to repaint one of their aircraft, special for the show, and this year the Planes of Fame P-51D is being painted in the markings of an Iwo Jima based 506th FG Mustang, named "Dolly" - it is simply stunning!
Here are some photos from the Planes of Fame Facebook page, preparing for the show.
