June 23, 2012: High Country Warbirds Fly-in at Valle Airport, Arizona

Planes of Fame Fly-in at Valle, Arizona, June 23, 2012 The Grand Canyon Planes of Fame Museum at Valle Airport, Arizona hosted the High Country Warbirds Fly-in on Saturday, June 23, 2012. The weather was warm and very windy. The flybys were lower and closer to that audience than any other show that I know of, and the sun was behind the audience during the morning. It's a small show. The crowd was just a few hundred people, so there was always a lot of room on the crowd line. The Planes of Fame annex has many rare antique planes, including VC-121A Bataan, the Pacific Air Martin 404 that used to be at Camarillo, and the Western Convair 340 that used to be at Chino. There is also a remarkable collection of vintage automobiles in the Airport terminal building. Some of the attendees bought rides aboard the P-51D Mustangs.

Several familiar airplanes from the Planes of Fame Museum at Chinio were flown over the course of the day. Many of the attendees bought rides aboard the P-51D Mustang, P-40N Warhawk, P-38J Lightning, and Ford Trimotor.
