Event Details

Mark your calendars! Our next presentation will be on mass production during World War II.
During World War II, American manufacturers produced massive amounts of supplies for the U.S. military and U.S. allies. The Lionel toy train company started producing items for warships. Ford Motor Company produced B-24 bombers. Packard built Merlin engines. On Saturday November 12th, we will conduct a presentation on American mass production in support of the war effort. Weather, operations, and maintenance permitting, one of our warbirds will fly!
Iconic aircraft from World War II, most in flyable condition, will also be on display. See the world’s only surviving PBJ-1J Mitchell, a real Zero, and the Zero killer, the F6F Hellcat. And for the adventurous, paid rides will be available in several different vintage military aircraft!
Mark your calendars to enter the ‘difficult to imagine‘ world of American World War II production.
Saturday December 10th, 11:00 AM – 2:00 PM at the Commemorative Air Force Museum at Camarillo Airport, 455 Aviation Drive, Camarillo, California.
