The 2016 edition of the Planes of Fame airshow was held April 30. Airailimages was on hand to film this commemoration of the attack on Pearl Harbor on Dec. 7, 1941.
During the recreation, Japanese aircraft engage a civilian airplane before the actual attack. For the re-enactment, two restored A6M Zero fighters and a replica Val dive bomber flew.
A remarkable total of five P-40 Warhawks launched to represent the defenders of Pearl Harbor, culminating in a special missing man formation at the end of the remembrance.
