Nice shots! I'm so happy to see the Castle Air Museum is alive and well. I was assigned to Castle in the early 90s (I was a B-52 Instructor Pilot) and went there for training at various times since 1984. Would love to go back and visit again!

I have two big air show memories. The first was meeting Greg Boyington at the Chino air show in the early-mid 80s along with the guy who shot him down. They sat next to each other selling their books, "Bah Bah Black Sheep" and "Bye Bye Black Sheep.

My second memory is much older, around 1970 or 71 when I was only about 4-years-old. We went to Fort Dix for an air show and the F-104 flew by VERY fast, and VERY low. Still can feel and see it like it was yesterday.

I'm also not sure how it was possible as the SR-71 didn't officially exist, but sometime between 1972 and 1975 I had a toy one. It was yellow plastic, and I broke off the pitot.
