STREGA!!!! - Aviation Airshow Air Race Photography Discussion
I was on my way home from a four day houseboat trip. I look over and see two planes flying at Stregas base, Minter Field. I automatically drive over there and see that it was strega and Wee Willy a P-51 from Chino. As we get on the taxiway to watch they made a few high and slow formation passes. Preety soon Wee Willy made a speed pass and Strega a very high speed pass later on. Along with the passes they were practicing racing around a course in formation. As they taxiied in i noticed Kevin Eldridge was driving Wee Willy and Jr. was driving Strega. After they parked we saw Tiger arrive in his Tahoe after watching Jr. We said hi to both of them and then we were off. It was real sweet and may have been the trip highlight. Also in the hangar near where they parked was Czech Mate and the P-51 Man o War. Sorry i didnt have a Camera with me so i am real sorry i dont have pics.
