Air Group One is the San Diego Wing of the "Commemorative Air Force," a 501(c)(3) nonprofit organization headquartered in Midland, Texas. The CAF is a volunteer organization with members from all walks of life, dedicated to preserving the history of the people and planes of World War II.
The sequester will have no effect on Air Group One's June 7 & 8, 2014 air show as it has on the Miramar Air Show and many others around the country. This year's "AirShow San Diego" (formerly known as "Wings Over Gillespie") will feature a representative collection of aircraft and acts to support the commemoration of the 70th anniversary of "D-Day," the invasion of Normandy. Our show headliner will be the "D-Day Doll," a C-53 that actually flew three missions in the invasion.
Back by popular demand will be John Collver's War Dog T6/SNJ aerobatics.

Saturday will also will feature an afternoon and evening of 1940's costume dancing under the stars with 1940's, 50's and 60's music. Come dressed in your best 1940's attire and dance in the AirShow San Diego Dance contest!
