Paine Field Aviation Day 2016
Paine Field, Washington – May 21st, 2016: This year the annual Paine Field Aviation Day started out on a grey and rainy day but fortunately the cloud and rain lifted enough to get some flying in! Aircraft participating in the flight displays on the day included those from the Flying Heritage Collection (Curtiss P-40C Tomahawk and Republic P-47D Thunderbolt), Historic Flight Foundation (Grumman F7F Tigercat & Grumman F8F Bearcat), the Cascade Warbirds (IAR-823’s, Nanchang CJ-6, North American SNJ, North American T-28’s, Ryan Navion’s) and the Olympic Flight Museum (Goodyear FG1D Corsair). Despite the inclement weather it was a great day!
