Air Fiesta 2010 - CAF Air Show

"Tora, Tora, Tora" is the Commemorative Air Force's
recreation of the Japanese attack on Pearl Harbor that
signaled the beginning of the American involvement in World
War II. Designed as a living history lesson, "Tora, Tora,
Tora" is intended as a memorial to all the soldiers on both
sides who gave their lives for their countries.


P-40 War Hawk

"Devil Dog" PB-J

The A/OA-10 Thunderbolt II is the first Air Force aircraft
specially designed for close air support of ground forces.
They are simple, effective and survivable twin-engine jet
aircraft that can be used against all ground targets, including
tanks and other armored vehicles. Their wide combat radius
and short takeoff and landing capability permit operations
in and out of locations near front lines.

F/A 18 Hornet

The F/A-18 Hornet is a twin engine, mid-wing, all-weather
fighter and attack aircraft. The F/A-18A and C models are
single seat aircraft. The F/A-18B and D models are dual-
seated. The Navy uses the B and D primarily for training,
while the Marine Corps uses it for attack, tactical air control,
airborne forward air control, and reconnaissance. The F/A-18C
and D models are the result of an upgrade in 1987 incorporating
provisions for improved night attack capability, as well as
employing updated missiles and jamming devices.
