FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE
2013 Wings Over Camarillo Air Show
is Flying in Ventura County August 17-18.
May 31, 2013 –
Excitement continues to build in the air for the 33rd Annual Wings Over Camarillo Air
Show set for the weekend of August 17-18, 2013 at the Camarillo Airport.
This event will be the only air show in Ventura County this year as Federal budget cutbacks are preventing military participation in air shows. More than 60 air shows in the U.S. have been cancelled to date, according to the International Council of Air Shows, Inc.
“World War II and modern military aircraft have always been a part of our annual show in the air and on static display,” said Ron Missildine, chairman of the 2013 Camarillo Air Show.
“We are not forgetting the men and women who participated in many wars and conflicts by providing the general public a chance to see up close aviation heritage with aerobatic and flying demonstrations of experimental, military and vintage aircraft,” he said.
The two-day August air show features some of the most involved military aircraft in WWII, and experimental aircraft, that are still flying on the West Coast.
Gate Admission on Saturday August 17 and Sunday August 18 is $15. Free Parking and shuttle service. Gates will open 9am both days so you can see the static displays and other activities. The flying segment of the August air show runs from 12 Noon to 4:30pm.
In addition to all the flying and static displays, the show will offer a VIP Chalet featuring preferred, covered seating in a private hospitality tent. The Chalet is located right on our flight line and provides guests with food and beverages. Admission to the VIP Chalet is $80 for adults and $30 for children under 12.
The non-profit Camarillo Wings Association and its alliances with the Commemorative Air Force - Southern California Chapter, the Experimental Aviation Association - Chapter 723, and the Ventura County 99’s (The International Organization of Women Pilots) will host this event.
The air show proceeds go to other non-profit groups to “Promote Youth in Science and Aviation”, and to help our supporting organizations to provide leadership and service for the youth of Ventura County, including the Rio Mesa Band, Civil Air Patrol, Boy Scouts, Ventura Military Explorers, Ventura County Sheriff Explorers, Sea Scouts, and Rotary Clubs.
