A fun event if you are able to attend. It's well organized and well attended. Lots of antique, vintage, and replica aircraft on display (and best of all, it's at the original home of Starduster Aircraft Corporation). Come join the the fun and show your planes. Food and souvenir sales available on site too.

P.S. - I think they will be waiving the $10 entrance fee this year.

Bruce,
Jan and I will attend. She's driving up with all the camping gear and I get to hop the 'duster to Flabob without all the loading and unloading.

With luck we'll see you there.

Tom and Jan made it safely! Great turnout so far and that's the night before the event. Some very interesting aircraft out here and a flight of 4 Stearmans doing fly by's. Don't miss this if you can possibly make it!!!

LOL... I assume that this was aimed at my earlier (now corrected) typo, "wong warping". I swear, it was purely accidental.

Sorry about the quantity and size of pictures, but I hope you enjoy them.

A few notes:

The blue Starduster is (forum member) Tom and Jan Wilson's.

The Hiperbipe belongs to (forum member) Toobuilder (he's the one in the red shirt).

The big, grey biplane started life as a Stearman, but was morphed into it's own vintage military-like design. A beautiful job!

Eric Preston's Replica 1909 Bleriot was also a beautiful build.

There was lots of flying, but none of it scheduled or orchestrated. The field was left open for all to fly on their own accord.

The Airbus A380 approached way too high and had to divert to LAX instead.

Somehow, I missed including a photo of the Wright Flyer replica... I'll try to post it for you later.

We need to get more Stardusters to this event next year!

Bruce Smile
