Gayle Anderson was live in Camarillo with a preview of the 2014 WINGS OVER CAMARILLO AIR SHOW which is this weekend, August 23rd and August 24th at Camarillo Airport. Chuck Aaron of Westlake Village, CA, one of the few pilots to fly the Red Bull Helicopter upside down, will be joined by national air racing veteran and aerobatic pilot Vicky Benzing and about 60 other experienced pilots to thrill the crowds. By the way, the WINGS OVER CAMARILLO is the only air show to be held in Ventura County this year.
The air show begins at Noon and lasts through 4:30 p.m. Saturday and Sunday. To start the air show, parachutists will jump out of a transport plane at 8,000 feet above the airport and glide down over the crowd below. Afterwards, the show will feature single aircraft demonstrations and aerobatic fying, formation flying, high speed runs down the fly zone, plus vivid descriptions, the history of the flying aircraft and their pilots over the PA systems.
In addition to the air show, the whole day is packed with family fun, entertainment, food booths, a variety of vendors and other ground displays to see before the flying starts. FREE programs will be distributed at the gates listing daily activities and maps of the event areas.
Gates open at 9 a.m. Parking is FREE. A FREE shuttle bus service will take visitors to one of the entrances from nearby parking lots. PLEASE NOTE: Attendees to the air show may bring chairs and umbrellas. However, no food, drinks or pets are allowed. This is a non-smoking event. Smoking is not permitted.
