    Default Planes of Fame Airshow Petition

    There's a lawsuit out against Planes of Fame by the Yanks Air Museum, Flying Tigers Aviation, SOCAL MRO, and Zangeneh Aeronautics to stop the upcoming airshow.

    Please sign the petition here:

    PLEASE SIGN, This airshow does nothing but promote aviation. I can't believe any business at Chino Airport is concerned about the loss of revenue during one weekend, when the Airshow has such a positive impact on so many people. The result quite often lead to many furthering their interests in aviation in one form or another. These interests eventually impact aviation businesses in the way of cash flow. How can they not see this.

    I've been wanting to bring my 6 year old son to the show for a couple of years, but scheduling conflicts have prevented that from happening. THIS IS THE YEAR. He has a tremendous interest in WWII airplanes and history, and this is the BEST opportunity to get him exposure to living history on the west coast. I was also planning to take him to Yanks, so SHUTTING DOWN the show will represent LOST REVENUE for them, as well as any fuel services on the field, since we will be flying down.

    Excellent! I'm in the same boat, I've always wanted to go and this is the year that everything lines up perfectly. I'm even bringing my grandpa and uncle. We were going to visit Yanks on Friday as well, but not anymore!

    I've been to the Yanks Museum several times and it is a very nice museum with some beautiful airplanes. However, I will find it difficult to support them in the future if they don't drop this lawsuit.

    I have made preliminary plans to go to the show this year. And I was planning to visit the Yanks Museum. I would think the airshow would be a win win for everyone at the airport.

    Has anyone really seen the lawsuit as the petition was posted on April Fools Day? Just wondering with all the noise about fake news. It really doesn't make any sense but in this day & age what does? Time for a cool one.

    About as real as it gets. I took time to read the whole thing over the weekend.

    Signed right when I saw it.

    I hope they go under and all those planes that should be flying get repossessed by someone who will actually fly them.

    It's sad that they have a Hellcat, 2 P-47's, P-63 and P-39 that are practically airworthy but never fly. I've never liked them, but really HATE that museum now
