Air Show Photos
Here are some photos I took today at the Pacific Coast Dream Machines show in Half Moon Bay, California. This is a great event for the local community as Proceeds benefit the Coastside Adult Day Health Center. I live right down the road from this event so not only do I get to see the show, but I am lucky enough to be able to see the many vintage cars driving around town in addition to seeing the War birds and civilian aircraft fly by my house all of the time. In particular, Eddie Andreini, Sr. routinely buzzes the air port in his one of his two Yak-9Us or his Vintage P-51 D (yellow/black checkered nose) or modified Stearman. This year the weather was beautiful and so were the many types of airplanes that flew in. This year’s show included, amongst others, six P-51 Mustangs (4 D’s, 1 K(?) and 1 H). The sound of six Merlin’s firing up and buzzing the field is an AWSOME thing to hear and see! A DC-4 also flew in. This AC flew in the Berlin airlift and is currently used to spray surfactants on oil spills and was used in the recent Gulf oil spill cleanup.
Hope you enjoy the pictures.
