Santa Rosa: Wings Over Wine Country Air Show

The Pacific Coast Air Museum and The Charles Schultz Airport in Santa Rosa put on The Wings Over Wine Country Air Show August 15th and 16th. It's a big deal, and it seems like half the county comes out to see it. You can find out more about the Pacific Coast Air Museum at their website here:

At the show you can see antique aircraft, warbirds, and modern day aircraft, some of which perform flybys and will be parked on the ramp for an up-close and personal look. One of the exciting features of the Pacific Coast Air Museum's Wings Over Wine Country Air Show that you get the opportunity to touch and feel the awesome power and might of these historic machines which have meant so much to our great nation's history. Here is one on the ground:

And a few in the air.

My favorite was the U2. It snuck up on us with it's electric engine, then switched to it's jet fuel and was out of site within seconds. It was probably the single loudest sound I have ever heard in my life, with the exception of a space shuttle launch I witnessed in Florida.

There is also a lot of tasty food and drinks at the show too. My personal favorite is a turkey leg from the Willie Bird's stand. They have a concession at most of the fairs and farmers market's throughout the county, as well as a farm and a restaurant here. You can check out their website here: http://www.williebird.com/

Their restaurant's address is 1150 Santa Rosa Ave. in Santa Rosa. They are going to be on Guy Fieri's Diners, Drive-ins, and Dives on the Food Network soon. If you get a chance, you should watch the show and then check out the restaurant. I think they have the best tasting turkeys anywhere. Here is a picture of the restaurant and a map to show you how to get there:

Bon Appetite!
