Wings, Wheels and Rotors 2016

Members of Squadron 150 represented our squadron well at this year's Wings, Wheels and Rotors held at Los Alamitos Joint Forces Training Base (JFTB) on 23 October, 2016. Wings, Wheels and Rotors is an annual event presented by the Los Alamitos Chamber of Commerce which showcases a variety of current and classic aircraft, classic cars and this year we had a special guest the USAF Thunderbirds who were in town to perform for the Huntington Beach Airshow.

CAP members from throughout the area were instrumental in the success of Wings, Wheels and Rotors and we would be remiss if we didn't mention their contributions and thank them for making WWE2016 a success. CAP members helped direct traffic, kept the public a safe distance from where the Thunderbirds were parked, while also taking the time to engage the public and answer questions the public might have had about the Thunderbirds, CAP and even where the nearest restroom facilities were!

We're looking forward to being a part of Wings, Wheels and Rotors again next year. And stay tuned for future blog posts with video from the USAF Thunderbirds taking off from Los Alamitos JFTB!
