Thunder Over The Valley

If you live on the Central Coast, and are looking for something exciting to do this weekend, you had better check out the extraordinary combined car and air show at the Santa Maria Airport. Their schedule is posted here, and in this post. The show actually begins its preview today, Friday at about 11:30 a.m. with the aircraft arrival. It begins in earnest on Saturday, at 9:00 a.m. with the opening ceremonies. According to Michael Geddry, Sr. the Santa Maria Museum of Flight Director there will be a fly-by of a B-52 Bomber, on all three days, today through Sunday. Since the runway is too short to land the bomber they do the fly-by; however, that ought to be enough to rumble the rooftops of the entire valley.

They expect 10 to 15 thousand people. All of the aircraft will be military, and most will be active, with some smattering of World War II planes. There will be all kinds of booths, as well as a combined car show. Our Scout Troop, 432 is making it an activity on Saturday, and I'm looking forward to it.
