Air show Oct. 1 in Douglas, Arizona from air-show « WordPress.com Tag Feed by tourcochisecounty

Save the date! I just heard that there's going to be another free air show in Douglas. In March, their Border to Border air show was a fun day of pilots doing acrobatics.

In October, the Canadian Snowbirds will come to Douglas to perform. it's a great excuse to take a vacation day from work (it's on a Wednesday) and see some cool stuff! From their Web site:

The Snowbirds Demonstration Team is a Canadian icon. It's comprised of serving members of the Canadian Forces. Their pilots and technicians work as a team to bring thrilling performances to the public. As Canadian ambassadors, the Snowbirds demonstrate the high level of professionalism, teamwork, excellence, discipline and dedication inherent in the women and men of the Air Force and the Canadian Forces.

Here are graphics of some of the formations they do. Pretty cool when you think about the speed they fly and how close they are to each other. If you think it's tough not to bump into people when line dancing, imagine controlling an airplane at 115-370 mph!

I don't know the time of the show just yet, but it should be worth the trip. Check back for more info!

Pacific Coast Air Museum Receives Air Force Museum Certification

The Pacific Coast Air Museum, located at the Charles M. Schulz – Sonoma County Airport in Santa Rosa, CA, has been awarded full certification by the National Museum of the United States Air Force, located at Wright-Patterson AFB in Dayton, Ohio.

This prestigious certification is the result of a rigorous two and one-half year process culminating in an on-site inspection of the Pacific Coast Air Museum by the Air Force Museum staff.

The National Museum of the United States Air Force (Air Force Museum), in addition to its own heralded aviation collection in Dayton, Ohio, manages nearly 33,000 items on loan to field museums and domestic and international heritage sites. It also manages more than 6,400 historical artifacts and aerospace vehicles on loan to 454 civilian museums, cities, municipalities and veterans' organizations throughout the world. Only 103 private civilian Air Museums such as the Pacific Coast Air Museum have ever received certification from the Air Force Museum.

The certification means that the Pacific Coast Air Museum has been judged to have achieved the highest professional standards outlined by the American Association of Museums.

According to Dave Pinsky, Executive Director of the Pacific Coast Air Museum, the Air Force Museum staff commented that the Pacific Coast Air Museum’s aircraft collection was amongst “the best restored and best maintained aircraft collection they had ever seen in a private Air Museum”.

In addition to being a prestigious certification recognizing the Pacific Coast Air Museum as achieving high professional standards, the Air Force Museum certification means that the Pacific Coast Air Museum is eligible to receive Air Force Museum aircraft and artifacts on loan from the Air Force Museum. According to Executive Director Dave Pinsky, the museum staff is working on the loan of several artifacts to augment the SR-71 Blackbird display at the museum, an aircraft Pinsky flew while in the Air Force.

The Pacific Coast Air Museum restores, maintains and displays historic aircraft, preserves and displays Sonoma County aviation history, and provides an educational venue for the community, especially for schoolchildren.

The Pacific Coast Air Museum also produces the annual two day “Wings Over Wine Country” Air Show on the third weekend of August each year.

On December 21, 1968, astronauts Frank Borman, Bill Anders and Jim Lovell blasted off from Kennedy Space Center for a six-day mission to the moon. After a three-day trip, they orbited the moon 20 times and made a memorable Christmas Eve television broadcast in which they read ten verses from the Book of Genesis. The crew also witnessed and photographed an event no one had ever seen: an earthrise as Earth appeared from behind the moon as the crew orbited. Their historic mission fundamentally changed the way we think about our planet and paved the way for the Apollo 11 mission and moon landing seven months later. For our keynote presentation on the morning of Tuesday, December 9, Major General Bill Anders (USAF, retired) and Colonel Frank Borman (USAF, retired) will give us a behind-the-curtains look at that historic Apollo 8 mission, just a few days before the 40th anniversary of their trip.

Mike’s Mystery Machine # 03. (2008 series) from AeroHub by admin
This (very) late 1930’s American smallish short/medium-haul airline transport has long attracted my interest for several reasons. It was placed into production with airline orders growing, but its future was abruptly cut short by the outbreak of World War Two after only 12 had been delivered. It was decided that maximum effort should be dedicated to the mass production of other transport types urgently required for use by the allied forces of several countries. For example; Douglas C-47, Douglas C-54 and Curtiss C-46.
