AIR PROGRESS SHOW July 1969 VAN NUYS AIRPORT

DISCOVERING OUR VALLEY   2011             Van Nuys is 100

In 1963, aviation lovers committed themselves to an annual "Air Progess Show" to be held at historic Van Nuys Airport. It was the kind of commitment that would make the Van Nuys Airport into one of the most important centers of commercial aviation in America. Over the years, Van Nuys Airport has brought the San Fernando Valley thousands of jobs and has been a major boost to the region's economy.

I was probably at that show. My dad's boss lived on Victory, in the flight path of Van Nuys Airport (there was a NIKE missile site across the street).

Dad would take us to Jim Day's house where we'd hang out in the pool and watch the 'fly in' overhead, then we'd go to the air show.
