BZ's 2011 Chino Air Show Photo Gallery


The Planes of Fame Museum hosts an annual air show in Chino, CA that attracts warbird enthusiasts from all over. This years' show was as spectacular as ever, and the crowds seemed much larger too!

There were so many wonderful WWII and Korean War era planes flying there that I hardly know where to start. One thing I know is that I took a LOT of pictures. Of course, that just meant that I had a lot of work to do to sort it all out afterwards! Now instead of doing the 'sensible' thing and post a few pictures of the very best shots, I'm killing myself here by posting a few good pictures of everything!

Organization wise, this meant a whole lot of extra work for me - as I pretty much created a page for each plane type (with a few exceptions). So while I've been trying to work on my editing/shot selections - all that was thrown out the window for this show. Sort of. I tried to pick only the best shots for each of the planes, without too much repetition. Hope you enjoy my efforts!
