50th Anniversary of the 1967 Nats

Today’s the last day of 50th Anniversary of the 1967 Nats at the Naval Air Station in Los Alamitos, CA!  Everyone is packing up and going home – except for these guys.

The museum’s here full time, but we’ll see the Nats next summer – 1968 or 2018. ;o)

Learn more about the 1967 Nats in the July 2017 issue of Model Aviation.
