Bring It On!
Things are about to get a little louder around Marysville, CA...
but we doubt many will mind. Vistors to the 2008 edition of the
Golden West Regional Fly-in and Airshow, which will run June 6-8 at

Air Station Lemoore, CA.
Also headlining the show will be the perennially crowd-pleasing

"This year's Golden West will have something for everyone

through their paces certainly won't be disappointed."
In addition to the airshow each day, The Golden West Regional
Fly-in will feature forums and workshops, a "Kid Qwest" hangar, and
EAA Young Eagles flights for children 8-17. The Golden West Aero
Mall will have exhibits by manufacturers of the latest aircraft,
avionics and pilot supplies.
