The Planes of Fame Air Museum (POF) is the place to be on either Saturday May 4th or Sunday May 5th, 2024 (or both!) as the Chino, CA-based museum presents its annual “Wings, Tracks, and Wheels” special event.

The reenactors have set up a real military encampment to help everyone better understand and appreciate the duties and sacrifices of our veterans. You’ll see historic aircraft flyovers as they’ve scheduled multiple demonstration flights of WWII-era warbirds, and you’ll be able to take a flight in a real World War II military trainer. And everyone will thrill to the dramatic demonstration of the museum’s WWII-era M4 Sherman tank including the firing of her gun!
