Even with the government shutdown prohibiting aerobatics, the 2013 Apple Valley Airshow was a success with quite a few warbirds out from the Planes of Fame Air Museum and fly-bys of various aerobatic and vintage classic aircraft including a rare Fokker DR1 replica! The weather was great for the show with warm temperatures and many static aircraft from civilian to law enforcement.

Planes of Fame Pre-Airshow Setup 2013 - May 1-2, 2013
Normally turning Chino Airport into a beehive of activity, this year the two days before Planes of Fame Airshow 2013 were relatively quiet with only some aircraft being serviced on Wednesday and a very bad Santa Ana wind storm causing all work and arrivals to stop on Thursday. With little going on other than occasional engine run ups, it was a good time to shoot the Air Museum aircraft!
