Wings Over Gillespie

By David Rose, Contributing Editor & Photographer
San Diego, California

Wings Over Gillespie entrance

The annual Wings over Gillespie event in El Cajon California is always much greater than what you expect from the smaller regional air shows spread across the country.

Entry Fee - 20 bucks or a pint of your blood (left). The CAF organized it all (right).

Event Chairman Bob Simon's Beautiful Stearman, an eleven year restoration and named after his equally beautiful wife D'Marie (left). A1-E The Viet Nam Workhorse (right).

P-51D Red Dog.

The organizers never fail to garner an exiting array of aircraft topped off by such attractions as the so rare flying B-17 "Sentimental Journey", available again this year for tours and rides.

Take a ride in the Sentimental Journey. The B-17 carried only 6-8 bombs at 300 mpoh

F-4's are always welcome (left) as are N3's (right).

F8 (left), Lady Alice (right.

Flying wings, Jet fighters, WW ll era fighters and attack aircraft of nearly every design committed to combat in those war years, as well as an exceptional array of private production and experimental aircraft.

SA-16's have saved many a pilot (left), T-34 (right).

One Of A Kind - the Northrop N9M Flying Wing.

Food aplenty satisfying every taste and an assortment of vendors for everything aviation
The local Chambers were represented and Mobil Control Was On Hand

The fact that near perfect flying weather seems always available in southern California never hurts the turn out of both aircraft and visitors.

The Seals Under Water Delivery System (left).
Fighter Sim Rides were enjoyed by many (right.
The B-25 Maid in the Shade (left) and The Fairey Firefly (right).
Green Giant

A large crowd was on hand all days of the fly-in/airshow enjoying the static displays and tours while reveling in the many low passes staged by most of the most interesting aircraft.

It wasn't all aircraft.
Seals Dune Buggy Gunship.

Put it on your calendar for next June; you won’t be disappointed.
