The Camarillo Airshow was a bit smaller this year than in previous years, due to gas prices and another show in Central California on the same weekend. Nevertheless, it was a great show. I was there both days this year and was glad to attend both days as a few things changed in the program between the two days. The weather was warm, but not unbearable with a light breeze that kept things at a nice temperature both days. The mornings began as they normally do in Camarillo, with a marine layer of fog. But by late morning, it had burned off to give nice lighting for photographing the aircraft that flew throughout the day. Several ultralights flew in the morning as did home-builts and various other civilian aircraft.

The national anthem featured a banner tug Piper Super Cub towing a large American Flag. There was a nice blending of civilian and warbird aircraft that flew, with the grand finale being Bill Reeseman in his MiG-17 Red Bull Fresco.

The table below lists the aircraft that flew or were on static display at the show.
