Planes of Fame Air MuseumHistory Museum in Chino, California
Good Saturday morning!! Hardly seems possible that our show was two weeks ago today!! Beautiful air to air of Voodoo and Strega...enjoy!
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.
Sharing this for our friends at The Greatest Generations Foundation- we will send a card for sure!
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

We spent about an hour walking around, and looking at ...all the planes. It was interestin
There isn't anything interactiv
There are about 4 hangers with planes, then a bit outside. You must pay close attention.
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.
So much history in one place and nearly daily you can see warbirds fly overhead.
Yesterday I bought my son a membership
Flo's Diner next door is a fun way to end a day at POF - pie!!!
