If you live in the New England area, you might be interested in the First Annual Aviation Heritage Day, 9/16-17, at Daniel Webster College in Nashua, NH. They will fly in B-17, B-24, P-51, AT-6, and other aircraft, and a number of WW2 pilots will be speaking, including the pilot of the Memphis Belle; "Gabby" Gabreski, WW2/Korea ace; three of the Tuskegee Airmen pilots; and many more (e.g., an SR-71 pilot, USAF ace Steve Ritchie, Gene Kranz, Apollo 11/13 capcomm ($10 admission). See http://www.dwc.edu/features/events/avherfest.html for more details... it looks cool. I'm going with my father-in-law, who flew B-24's in the Pacific 1942-43.

Chino...Chino....Chino,

Wow, you made my day! Thanks for the heads up. This should be really cool. Incredible, two airshows in one month. There is also an airshow in Burlington, VT the following weekend featuring the Thunderbirds. September is a great month for airshows with all this cool air around. Thanks Chino!!!!
