Pilots Fly High Over Camarillo

CAMARILLO — Hundreds of people showed up to watch the Wings Over Camarillo two-day annual air show. On Sunday, it was the kids who impressed the pilots with their enthusiasm for all the vintage planes. Nearly 90 planes of all shapes and sizes enticed the crowd to the show including some first timers. “This is the kids first time at the air show. Her and I have been a couple times before but the kids, this is their first day and they’re having a blast,” said Chris Low, Simi Valley resident. For some, air shows like this are a life long passion. “I’m 72 and I still come out and enjoy this stuff. I started when I was a baby when my mother said I’d look up and say ‘Aircane, aircane!'” said Robert Taylor, aircraft enthusiast.For some of the kids at the airport, this was their first experience with these larger than life aircrafts and they learned a lot. “The bomber has these bombs on it that drop and the guns, machine guns,” said Connor Crupi of Sherman Oaks. And it’s the adults, who are really kids at heart, that enjoy sharing their airplane knowledge with these future fliers. “I was that age once. I was the kid there asking questions so hopefully they’ll find something they like later in life. If this is it, great,” said pilot Dan Delane. “It’s very fun to come here. If you come here you’ll get to go in the plane. Go in the front and hold the wheel and turn it,” explained Connor. The air show hosted pilots from across California and also the WWII 325th fighter group, Checkertail Clan, for their 67th annual reunion.
