Encyclopedia > Wings Over Gillespie

Wings Over Gillespie is a static airshow held the first weekend in May at Gillespie Field in El Cajon, California. It is conducted by the San Diego wing, Air Group One, of the Commemorative Air Force. It is a regular stop for many "warbirds" that make the airshow circuit each year including the CAF's B-17 Flying Fortress Sentimental Journey.

Airshow - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia (2469 words)
While helicopters and slower aircraft may fly at 500 feet from the crowd, faster jets may be required to keep a 1500 ft distance except during takeoffs, landings, and a few straight-line passes.
Aircraft may only fly over the crowd or at less that 500 ft distances if they are flying in a straight line or in a “banana pass”, where the aircraft starts out flying away from the crowd and turns towards the crowd, “cutting the corner” of the area where the crowd is allowed.
No people are allowed in the airshow box except those assisting the pilot in his or her act (for examples, to hold poles the aircraft flies between, or to drive ground vehicles associated with the aerial act).
