Air Museums at Chino California
go There are two very fine air museums at Chino Airport in California, Planes of Fame and Yanks Air Museum. Both are well worth the trip if you are in the area and since they are just at opposite ends of the runway.
I believe I saw more high gloss doped fabric at one airport than ever before! Both museums are heavily involved in flying restorations. When I was there they had just flown a Zero fighter (not a reproduction, a restoration from an aircraft captured on Saipan). It was amazing to see such a bird sitting on the ramp. At Planes of Fame the forst gallery had a Boeing P-26 in bright prewar colors and a natural aluminum finish Seversky multiplace fighter.
Yanks had its share of stunning looking aircraft, including a great B-25 a number of earlier biplanes and a few bright and shiny jets!
