Interesting Fly-Out Location

Originally published August 1997

On a recent trip to San Jose, I found yet another airport which might make a suitable destination for your next flying trip. Fly to Mefford Field (TLR) in Tulare CA (N36-09.38; W119-19.57). It's between Porterville and Visalia. Here you will find on static display a B-17 and an F-4. If your driving, take CA 99 north from Bakersfield. The aircraft are visible from the highway.
