2021 Planes of Fame Airshow Cancelled

Chino, California, September 21, 2021 – The Planes of Fame Air Museum has today announced that its 2021 Airshow, scheduled for Saturday, October 30 and Sunday, October 31, 2021, at the Chino Airport has been cancelled.


“After losing the 2020 Airshow due to the Covid-19 pandemic, we were looking forward to presenting this year’s show,” commented Museum president Steve Hinton. “But the difficult decision was made to cancel this year’s event. We hope 2022 will be a different story.”

 

This decision was made after careful deliberation and discussion. Logistical issues and rising operational costs associated with conducting a large-scale event, as well as the continuing challenges related to the pandemic, have led to this cancellation.


CNO Taxilane 'M' Closed 9/20 - 9/30

As progress is being made at CNO, signage has been place throughout the airport that Taxilane "M" will be closed from Monday Sept. 20 through Thursday, Sept. 30 for asphalt removal and replacement.

During this time, and for the safety of everyone, fencing will be placed around the construction zone (See Map Here). Final cleanup will occur on Friday, Oct. 1.

Please feel free to contact Adrianna Ortiz, Airport Planner, at (909) 465-5205 or Adrianna.Ortiz@airports.sbcounty.gov if you have any questions or concerns.

YANKS AIR MUSEUM RE-OPENS SATURDAY, APRIL 17

Yanks Air Museum shines again for its grand re-opening after a year of closure

Yanks-Air-FB-Graphic-041421

Yanks Air Museum will once again re-open its doors Saturday, April 17, after more than a year of closure since the original stay-at-home orders were given by Gov. Newsom on March 19, 2020 due to the COVID-19 pandemic.

“We are ready for many happy smiling faces to return through our doors! Staff and volunteers are attending meetings to provide COVID preparedness, as well as the updates and exhibits that are new here at Yanks,” said Yanks Air Museum Director Christen Wright.

Yanks Museum sits on nearly 10 acres of land with two dedicated hangars of more than 200 antique American aircrafts and artifacts on display. Visitors can spend a full day in the museum and yet may not see everything that is housed.

From the Wright 1903 Flyer (replica) to a North America P-51D Mustang in the Legends Hangar to the infamous Blue Angels F/A-18B Hornet in the Starfighter Hangar, there are many military aircraft onsite.

For the re-opening, there will be an entire day lined up with activities, including a P-40 flight demonstration at around 10:30 a.m. with pilot Mark Todd and the new children’s area with a carousel, arcades and amusement rides located in the Starfighter hangar.

Wright said, “Once again, you will be able to take a selfie with the Blue Angels F-18 Hornet, all aircraft are now sparkling and camera ready.” 

Visitors will also have the opportunity to explore and roam through the “boneyard” where old relics lie or can climb aboard the EC-121 “Connie” aircraft.

During the shutdown, Wright said that the museum was able to secure a grant to help keep their staff working and received a lot of support from the community.

“Even while closed the online store continued to received orders and memberships. Emails poured in from everywhere with the kindest words of encouragement. Many of our partners, photographers and friends were hindered through this pandemic too. We look forward to their return and once again becoming one-big-happy-family at Yanks,” Wright said.

The grand re-opening celebration will start at 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. Tickets can be purchased online or at the door. Entry for adults is $16, veterans and senior prices are $14 and children (5-11 years) is $5.

Food, alcoholic and non-alcoholic beverages will be available at an additional cost. All children’s rides are open and will be an additional cost as well. There will be temperature checks and sanitizing stations. Social distancing and masks will be required.   


AIRPORT PERIMITER ROAD SAFETY REMINDER

The ongoing construction around Chino Airport and specifically on Merrill Avenue has resulted in many airport users accessing the airport perimeter road to exit the south gate at Kimball Avenue. 

With the increased traffic, it is important to remember while driving on the perimeter road, the speed limit is 25 mph. The FAA also requires the use of vehicle flashers (hazard lights) while driving in the airport environment at all times. 


This guidance is extremely important for the safety of everyone. Please ensure that all visitors, staff and workers follow the safety guidance.

STATEMENT

October 27, 2020

After the San Bernardino County Department of Airports received recent noise complaints by several residents near Chino Hills State Park, a 747 cargo carrier at Chino Airport (CNO) has agreed to alter its departure flight path from west to east, over an industrial area to mitigate aircraft reverberation in the surrounding area.

During this time of year, the CNO serves as a transport location for the automobile industry. Freight movers use CNO for just-in-time (JIT) inventory system deliveries for Detroit automakers and have done so for the past seven years. There is no time restriction on airport use.

 

“The cargo carrier noted that due to COVID-19 they have had to reduce the amount of flights to minimize crew exposure and as a result have increased fuel and cargo capacity on each flight,” said San Bernardino County Director of Airports James Jenkins. “By this change in the flight path, residents should not be as affected by these aircraft departures.”

 

Several residents in the vicinity of Chino Hills State Park reported unusual sound and vibration associated with a fully loaded 727 cargo plane that departed Chino Airport (CNO) early Thursday morning, Oct. 15 at 1:25 a.m.

For more information please email admin@airports.sbcounty.gov or call (909)465-5201.

Several residents in the vicinity of Chino Hills State Park reported unusual sound and vibration associated with a fully loaded 727 cargo plane that departed Chino Airport (CNO) early Thursday morning, Oct. 15 at 1:25 a.m. The San Bernardino County Department of Airports is reaching out to residents who complained about the disturbance.

“I have spoken to several residents about this and all were appreciative  for the contact and were primarily concerned the aircraft was in distress or that they may have been in some kind of danger,” said San Bernardino County Director of Airports James Jenkins.

During this time of year, Chino Airport (CNO) serves as a transport location for the automobile industry. Freight movers use CNO for just-in-time (JIT) inventory system deliveries for Detroit automakers and have done so for the past seven years. There are no restrictions imposed on the time of airport use and this aircraft was authorized to use CNO.

Cloud cover may have been a contributing factor to the sound magnification reverberating over the hillside, Jenkins said. 

More information will be made available if the cause is determined to be unrelated to the 727 cargo plane.
