Pancho Barnes Loved her Travel Airs


The Legend of Pancho Barnes will be screening at the West Coast Travel Air Reunion at Flabob Airport in Riverside on Friday, October 2.  This unique fly in event is made possible by the Travel Air Restorers Association and our friends at Flabob, notably John Lyon and Tom Wathen.  The seventh oldest surviving airport in California, Flabob was founded in 1925 as Riverside's municipal airport. Pancho probably flew in to Flabob on occasion, and if she did she most likely did so in one of her Travel Air biplanes.  Want to join in the fun?  RSVP by calling Kathy at (951) 683-2309 x 104, or email her: kathy(at sign)flabob.org
