Another year for this great local show that benefits critically ill children. Run by an organization that places private pilots with the parents of children that need care in a specialist facility (say, like a cancer center), the pilots will fly the children in their own planes at no cost to the parents. This year the weather held and brought out some very nice vintage equipment!

This is such an awesome event! I could only wish that something like that would happen here, and be within reasonable driving distance. That said, there are several locations within a 2 hours drive of me either way where such a show could be held.

Hi Rick - what a great turnout of lovely cars and aircraft!

Even a couple of kit planes!

I've always liked the Rutan Long EZE, all they need is a swept canard, retractible main gear and jet propulsion and they would be perfect!

I saw a pair of T-28s at a similar cars and planes show in Auburn CA many years ago. They are really big aircraft when you get up close!

I've found the Studebaker Avanti, do I get a prize?

:) Yep, first generation Avanti, behind the Bird. Didn't catch a photo of it though (and I probably should have run some of those through the photo shop to lighten up or clean up some of those images).

The T-28 was neat. He (they - the two owners) were there a couple years ago but I did not see them come in. This year, I got to see them come and go - those radials make a hell of a sound!

Ah, the '57 Ford Starliner. First ever production hard top convertible. All hydraulically driven - four rams, the mains were close to 3" in diameter!
