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
Yuba County Airport (MYV), will experience the sights and sounds of
the Navy's newest strike fighter, the Grumman F/A-18 "Super
Hornet," as performed by the Navy demonstration team based at Naval
Air Station Lemoore, CA.
Also headlining the show will be the perennially crowd-pleasing
AV-8B Harrier "jump jet," from the Marine Aircraft Group 13, 3D
Marine Aircraft Wing. The Harrier is noteworthy for its ability to
hover like a helicopter as well as perform as a conventional

Both military teams will perform all three days of the show.
"This year's Golden West will have something for everyone
interested aviation, from aerobatics, through antiques through
hands-on activities for children," said Golden West president John
Gibson. "People wanting to see and hear military planes being put
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.
