The Santa Paula airport is celebrating it's 80th birthday this year. It has been a number of years since Santa Paula has had an airshow, so it was a nice treat to see this one show up on my schedule. The morning haze cleared pretty quickly to make for clear blue skies with a few gusts. Because of the size of the airport and FAA regulations for crowd safety, most of the aircraft were staged out of Camarillo Airport with a Cessna 182 shuttling performers between airports. But it worked out okay. For a number of performers, it was their first airshow in front of a crowd. I look forward to seeing more of these performers in the future.
