Planes of Fame Air Show is at Chino Airport May 6 & May 7, 2017. This year’s show is commemorating the Planes of Fame Air Museum 60th Anniversary.
Air Show gates open at 8:00 am and there is usually a line forming by them. Flying starts at 11:00 so try to arrive early to the show. Walk around and check out all the aircraft and have a look at the booths and displays.
Planes of Fame Airshow celebrates military aircraft and the pilots that fly them. Escort fighters, night fighters, photo reconnaissance aircraft and long-range heavy bombers.
Also on hand are modern fighter jets, military vehicles old and new, Kids Zone, vendors, and food booths.
