    Hey Rogues,

    I mentioned this in our last meeting, but I thought I'd go ahead and post a thread on it since not everyone could attend the last meeting. Tickets are available online as well as locally in Chico, Also kids 12 and under are free! The big deal to see is going to be the Navy Hellcat, Japanese Zero and B-17 Bomber reenactment in the sky with pyrotechnics!

    The B-17 "Sentimental Journey" is one of only a few B-17's that are still flying today so is the A6M3 type 0 Model 22 Japanese Zero! I have been to a lot of air shows especially since my Dad and myself were both in the Air Force and I can count on one hand the number of times I have seen both planes! This is a great opportunity to see these magnificent planes up close on the ground and later in the air! Also you'll get to see an Air Force C-17 Globemaster III one HUGE plane do its stuff, the Army's 101st Airborne Division's Parachute Demonstration Team and the ACC West Coast Demo Team Flying the A-10 Warthog! For all you old school G.I. Joe fans, thats the plane the Cobra Rattler is based off of and one of my favs! Anyway, here is the link and the important info below. I'll be there Sunday and I hope some of you can make it one of the days, its going to be a great show!
