This year's "AirShow San Diego" (formerly known as "Wings Over Gillespie") will feature a representative collection of aircraft and acts to support the commemoration of the 70th anniversary of "D-Day," the invasion of Normandy. Our show headliner will be the "D-Day Doll," a C-53 that actually flew three missions in the invasion.
Back by popular demand will be John Collver's War Dog T6/SNJ aerobatics. Many other historic aircraft will be flying and on ground display in addition to military re-enactors, paratroopers, and a mock battle with "Pyro." Flying and mock battle performance days will be weekend of June, 7 & 8. Gates open 9 am to 4 pm, at Gillespie Field in El Cajon.
