2017 Chino Air show is a go!

Chino, CA — This year’s Planes of Fame Airshow at the Chino Airport will go on, after a group of airport businesses that filed a lawsuit to stop it has dropped the matter – for now.

On Friday, a judge was expected to consider a motion for a preliminary injunction to ground the popular event, planned this year for May 6 and 7.

The plaintiffs, which included Yanks Air Museum and Flying Tigers Aviation, said in a news release they plan to continue their legal action aimed at stopping future air shows at the Chino Airport.

“We do not want others to be harmed, as we have been every year, by the unfair actions of Planes of Fame,” Christen Wright, director of Yanks Air Museum, said in the news release.

“We decided to drop the preliminary injunction for the sake of attendees and vendors – those who have purchased tickets, those who have made travel arrangements, and those who are there to sell goods, services and food,” she said. “We hope to see a change in the way Planes of Fame operates this year’s air show now that a light has been shed on the ongoing issues they have refused to resolve.”

Planes of Fame Executive Director Jerry Wilkins said the museum was waiting for confirmation from the plaintiffs’ attorneys to verify statements they saw Yanks Air Museum post on social media.
