On Saturday, May 20, 2017, there will be a joint tour by the Grand Prix and Los Angeles Regions to the Western Museum of Flight at Zamperini Field, Torrance, CA.  This event will coincide with the 58th annual Torrance Armed Forces Day Parade, and there will be a variety of aircraft on display at the Museum before the Parade.   After the tour we will have lunch at the China Buffet, a very short distance from the Museum, with plenty of time for those who wish to watch the Parade, which starts at 1:30 pm.

We will meet at Ports of Call Village, in front of the San Pedro Fish Market, 1190 Nagoya Way, San Pedro, CA 90731 and have a scenic run up, down and around the Palos Verdes Peninsula.  The run will be a low-speed, 60 minute drive through Palos Verdes and offer very scenic views of the Port area, the entire LA Basin, and Santa Catalina Island (weather permitting of course).  We should start meeting up at 8 am, and the tour will start promptly at 9 am.

We should arrive at the Western Museum of Flight, 3315 Airport Drive, Torrance, CA 90505, at about 10 am. The Museum has a collection of large and small planes and exhibits covering the history of flight.  Docents will lead guided tours through the Museum.  In addition, there is an Armed Forces Day Parade in Torrance which includes flyovers of vintage and modern aircraft.  Most of these planes will stage from the flight line right in front of the Museum so you can view many more planes.  Museum admission is $5.00 payable at the Museum.  For more information about the Museum: http://www.wmof.com/ 

After touring the Museum we will have lunch at the China Buffet, 3525 Pacific Coast Hwy # G, Torrance,CA 90505 (a short drive away). The cost is $13.99, beverage not included.

There is the usual $10 registration fee per car, and registration will close on May 16, 2017, at midnight.  There is a limit of 50 participants (including the PCA-GPX members) for this event.

Additional details, including the route directions, will be provided prior to the event.
