Thanks to all the members and attendees that helped make the first Warbirds over Conejo a success! Dozens of new pilots, ranging in age from 5 to 75 years old, took the controls for the first time and flew aircraft ranging from 31-inch combat wings to two-meter powered sailplanes, all under the supervision of experienced pilots. Several simulators were also put to use.

In addition to multiple flying warbird demonstrations, static displays included WWI, WWII, Korean War, and modern aircraft. One crowd favorite display was a giant-scale F-16 jet. The two combat events, featuring full contact furballs of over a dozen aircraft, proved quite popular (especially with our  younger attendees).
