A Pictorial–Around the County with Donna Hendricks: Sneak Peek at the Wings Over Camarillo air show

By Donna Hendricks

I had the privilege of getting to attend a sneak peek of the Wings Over Camarillo Air Show, which is coming up next weekend- 8/22-23

This year they will be celebrating the 70th anniversary of the end of WWII. There were many WWII era planes, cars, and military vehicles.

It was great to see how they fold, and unfold the wings of some planes for storage (in hangers, or on ships).

I got to see Judy Phelps, a daredevil flying ace, in her Pitts plane. I only hope that I get to see her whole show next week! I really loved her new airplane. She’s a real gem, and an ace pilot.

I also got to meet Chuck Aaron and his Redbull helicopter. This is is last Camarillo air show since he will be retiring this year. He only has four more shows. If you haven’t seen him, make a point to! Have you ever seen or even imagined seeing a helicopter do a full, 360 loop? It’s amazing and seems to defy gravity, and other natural forces! You won’t want to miss this for sure.

There will also be WWII fighters and bombers, and lots of Classic Cars and Motorcycles.

This year’s show promises to be even greater than before. It’s happening on August 22 & 23. Gates open at 9am. The cost is only $15, and kids under 12 are free. Tickets and information are available online at WingsOverCamarillo.com.
