Harry Measures is with Jay Consalvi and Scott Germain.

A very short piece of footage from the Voodoo and Strega shoot on the Friday before the Planes of Fame airshow in Chino. Steve-o and Jay did a terrific job, rea...lly just amazing to watch - especially considering they were full of fuel and at 240mph (ish), pedestrian speeds for racing Mustangs. As Scott said, mic drops from both! Many thanks of course to Scott, Jay, Steve, Stu and all at PoF.

LAST WISH: SEND A BIRTHDAY CARD - For his 100th birthday on June 6 -- which comes 74 years after he was miraculously pulled off a Normandy-bound boat on D-Day -...- Michigan WWII veteran Isaac "Ike" Fabela has just one last wish, his family said.

Mr. Fabela will be anxiously checking his mail, as the happy and humble vet hopes to rack up 100 birthday cards from well-wishers across the country.

Born in Texas in 1918, served in World War II from 1944 to 1946. His service took him to countries such as France, Germany and Norway. He experienced D-Day on June 6, 1944, which also happened to be his 26th birthday.

“When someone calls him a hero, it touches his heart. But he doesn't feel like he deserves that title. He always says that the young men who didn’t make it back are the heroes,” Lolie said.

“It’s amazing, the things he remembers. The stories he can tell -- he’s like a walking history book,” she added.

Ike has lived in Montrose for the majority of his life, and is highly respected in the community, Lolie said. She recalled various instances of strangers approaching her father, thanking him for his countless acts of charity.

“He is a very humble man and says that he's never done anything to deserve all this," she said. “But he has.”

If you would like to send Ike a birthday card, you can mail it to:

MR. IKE FABELA

Had such a wonderful time at the 2018 POF Air Show, and coming back after it was all done and spending the day there. It was certainly a privilege to be an announcer for the show, and I can't wait to ...come back next year and see it all again! The displays are amazing, and so many pieces you can't see anywhere else in the world, and it's run by people who make you feel so at home. Wonderful experience all around! See More

I have been to numerous air museums in my lifetime; however I can truly say the Planes of Fame museum has the best collection of aircraft I have ever seen in one location. My wife and I spent 4 hours ...at the facility this past Wednesday and as I left I felt that I shortchanged myself by not spending more time there. I have pondered those things that I saw at the museum this past week, I am not sure if there is one thing better than the other because there are so many good things contained in each of the hangars. However I must say, to be allowed to walk through a tiny piece of what would be considered an aircraft graveyard in the area west of the foreign hanger, that is pretty unique, a must see and a one of a kind photo opportunity. The Planes of Fame museum, a one of a kind must see for all aircraft enthusiasts and history buffs. See More

We bought our tickets on Groupon for a great deal. We went around noon on Sunday (Christmas Eve) and it was completely dead. 3 cars in the lot.

We spent about an hour walking around, and looking at ...all the planes. It was interesting. They don't give you any history on the planes, which is disappointing. Just a map, with the names.

There isn't anything interactive. You can't get inside any of them. There is a tiny helicopter outside with steps that are very wobbly, that you can climb in and take photos with.

There are about 4 hangers with planes, then a bit outside. You must pay close attention. A lot of the planes are all over, and the wings and propellers are eye level. So you could easily get hurt if you don't pay attention. Also, where there are things roped off, the poles stick way out. I tripped over one.

It was fun. A one time kind of thing. There is no place to get food. There are a few soda machines. A gift shop. Pretty pricy. We get shot glasses when we go places. Usually 3-5 bucks. There's was 9. There are restrooms.

Fun little place to go to waste an hour.

Great museum. Knowledgeable staff and volunteers. How wonderful to have so many planes that are restored fully for flight. Hope we get to attend an air show! No better way to appreciate history than t...o have places like Planes of Fame - where history is living through lots of dedication, hard work and fundraising. See More

The place is awesome it's filled with vintage airplanes, fantastic displays, and packed with volunteers, mechanics, and staff that really take time to make you feel at home and leave with new knowledg...e. I highly recommend this place to any airplane enthusiast, history buff, or anyone wanting to see period aircraft up close and personal. They are restoring all sorts of aviation history on site and have experts on just about every thing aeronautical. You get to see how much work goes into keeping this history alive. If any place deserves a reality show it's this place... Make sure you bring the whole family and plan to spend the whole day if not two kids will love it. See More

An amazing excursion for Airplane Buffs or History Nerds!
So crazy to be able to get this close to so much history. And the fact that most of these planes fly is mind boggling. Use AAA Card and it’s l...ess than $10bucks...

Certainly some sights to behold.

My boys and I had such a great time. They have a great selection of planes to see. Layout was great and the staff was very kind and courteous. We can't wait for the Air show ☺️

Fantastic place!
So much history in one place and nearly daily you can see warbirds fly overhead.
Yesterday I bought my son a membership - he spent the entire day there enjoying a monthly presenta...tion, BBQ, tours (awesome that you can enter most of the big planes that are in safe condition). We've sponsored the restoration of a bomber that is visible from the street - we drive by frequently to watch the progress. Fantastic!
Flo's Diner next door is a fun way to end a day at POF - pie!!!

Best warbird airshow anywhere. Access to the flight line with great photo opportunities is wonderful. We love all air shows but the Planes of Fame air show is simply the best with so many vintage wa...rbirds in the air all day long. THANKS. See More

We had a great time at the museum. I’ve always loved the smell of a hangar full of flying airplanes. My son is in a stage of fascination with wwii era equipment and hardware. He was not disappointed. ...The outdoor displays were quite interesting as well. We have also visited the Valle, AZ location, and we’re not disappointed there either. See More

The Double Knot loved working with Planes of Fame on a wedding this past weekend! Their staff was always there to help, and quickly responded to any of my needs during the planning process and had inc...redible attention to detail. The couple were so happy with how everything turned out! Thank you! See you at another event soon! See More

Planes of Fame is an awesome place. You are surrounded by history! I attended the Taste of Flight Gala and it was the best time I have had for a very long time!

It was wonderful to watch my Father looking at all the planes in the hanger. My parents took a trip down memory lane. Hope they can join us again next year for the Hanger Dance.

I worked at the museum when I was in High School. I will always cherish my time working on the aircraft, esp the Zero and the FR-1 Fireball. It's the best museum there is because it was build from lov...e of aviation. I go and visit every time I'm in the area. See More
