8th Annual West Coast Formation Clinic

Hosted by the Golden Gate Wing of the CAF and Canon Aviation Insurance, the 8th annual TRARON Formation Clinic was considered a great success by the organizers during the weekend of May 20-22, 2005. Held again at Castle Airport (ex-AFB) near Merced, 58 warbird aircraft were registered, with twice that number of pilots, receiving training or riding as check pilots. I was given the opportunity to cover this event by the Pacific Flyer, for a formation flight of four P-51 Mustangs, with special guest Gen. Chuck Yeager flying one of them.  For my article on this event, click here. With limited space for pictures, I have tried to avoid a duplication of aircraft that I've posted in past years.  (Special thanks to Stu Eberhardt, Jim Booth, Ken Karas, and Jim McCabe)  If you have any additional information or corrections for these pictures, let me know. There is text attached to all the photographs.
