Planes of Fame has a Flying History event on the first Saturday of every month.
The 2011 season was pretty amazing and I am looking forward to seeing what they have planned for this years events.
This thread at SimHQ covers most of the 2011 events. simhq.com/forum/ubbthr...ost3256398

LIVING HISTORY FLYING DAYS


Living History Flying Days at Planes of Fame Air Museum are are held on the first Saturday of every month when we feature an historically significant aircraft from our rare and unique collection. Our program begins at 10:am with the Pledge of Allegiance. Typically we host a 1.5 hr. discussion panel of expert speakers each presenting to the public. Speakers often include: book authors, pilots, historians, and/or eyewitness accounts of historic events and sometimes include a slideshow. An opportunity for question and answer is provided followed by a member raffle for a flight that day, weather permitting. At noon, again weather permitting, we fly the featured aircraft overhead for about 20 minutes. Featured aircraft are generally on display and available to photograph during the program. We have come to expect anywhere from 250 - 500 guests in attendance so please arrive early to secure a good seat and tour the Museum before the program starts. Doors open at 9:00 a.m. on Saturdays and the gift shop has a limited number of author/speaker books available. See you there!

WHERE: Planes of Fame Air Museum
7000 Merrill Avenue #17
Chino, CA 91710

WHY: It is the Mission of Planes of Fame Air Museum to preserve aviation history, inspire interest in aviation, educate the public, and honor aviation pioneers and veterans.

The worlds only remaining flying Boeing P-26A Pea Shooter returns to the skies over Southern California for the Planes of Fame monthly flying history event for January, 2012. The very rare flight of this unique aircraft is captured (with some difficulty) in flight from the top of the tail. The aircraft prop wash overpowered the camera mounts and the video has been adjusted to preserve this flight in the best possible production.
