May's Plane Crazy Saturday Salutes Local EMS Providers

The May edition of Mojave's Plane Crazy Saturday celebrated the beginning of National EMS Week by saluting our local EMS air providers, the CHP and Mercy Air, as well as ground providers Hall Ambulance (Kern Co. Fire and Sheriff's departments were invited to bring their helicopters as well, but regrettably had to cancel).

Although the famous Chino airshow, also being held this weekend, seemed to reduce the number of aircraft attending this months event, the surprise attendee was TBM's 1957-model C-130A, ex-Tanker 64, which is now being used as a flight test aircraft (complete with 3-panel EFIS cockpit!).

Lastly, anyone wanna buy a slightly used Bellanca??
