The CAF SoCal Wing hosted a special event to commemorate Pearl Harbor. Jim Hinckley gave a great presentation about Pearl Harbor, including the key players, tactics and methods. The Wing flew their authentic Mitsubishi A6M3 Zero, one of only a handful around today in flyable condition. The Wing's Grumman F6F Hellcat and F8F Bearcat also flew for a formation that I don't think you will see anywhere else. Jason Somes flew the Zero. Gary Barber flew the Hellcat and Steve Barber flew the Bearcat. Three members of the Condor Squadron also flew some flyovers for the event.

Jim had a nice crowd for the presentation about Pearl Harbor.
