Chino Planes of Fame Airshow May 4-5 2013

Unfortunately the weather man discouraged me from going to the Chino airshow this year but my good friend Tony Naccarato and his son Ryan went and had a great time. They stated that there was a bunch of new planes this year that haven't been at the shows in the past including 5 fully operational P38's!They said it was really cool because they flew them in formation which is an extremely rare site these days. I just wish I had been there to see it :(. Tony was telling me about a new P40 at the field that was done up in an all polished skin that he had never seen before. They had a Sea Fury this year and a Spitfire! He also stated that stashed away in the museum they have a Messerschmitt ME109 they are currently restoring. I am hoping it will be a flying restoration and not just a hanger hanger. I am posting some of the pictutes Tony and his son took, I hope you enjoy them. I will definately be catching next years show!
