    Default Camarillo Airshow

    Hi all,
    Went to a little airshow near Ventura.
    I wanted to get a bit of shutter time before the races.
    Hope you like them.

    Great photos, but who belongs to that beautiful Wildcat, I have never seen it before?

    Bill, Tim, Eric, Tex,
    Thanks for your comments.

    The Mustang is a work of art. It's also another one that we can thank James Defuria for saving from the scrapers.

    General Motors FM-2 Wildcat, N5833 originally carried Navy BuNo 86819. Its General Motor construction number is 5877. It crashed in 1955 while flying as a sprayer for Butler Aviation of Redmond, Oregon. The rebuild project took many years and the airframe passed therough the hands of several owners. It received its current registration in August 1983. It was returned to the air on April 24, 1987 by Air Group One at Ramona, California. It spent a short while in the hands of Military Aircraft Restoration Corporation at Chino. It is now registered to the American Airpower Heritage Flying Museum and based at Camarillo

    There was another Mustang that was just as nice.
    Didn't see it fly though.
    I also herd that the "Dove of Peace" was there the day before.

    I couldn't confirm it, but I think this polished Mustang belongs to Kevin LaRosa from LA. Peas
