The Golden Gate Wing is the San Francisco bay area's chapter of the Commemorative Air Force and has many active members who meet regularly, maintain and fly aircraft, and take part in air shows and educational events. The Golden Gate Wing had its Bay Area roots in the CAF Pacific Wing in 1981. From that original organization came the core of today's Wing.
The Golden Gate Wing has hosted two major events at Oakland International Airport's North Field. We organized the 1991 air show honoring the Tuskegee Airmen, the African-American flying instructors and combat pilots of World War II, and 1995's Freedom Week, featuring the CAF's B-29 "Fifi" and B-24 "Diamond Lil". Both offered the general public an opportunity to see historic types of aircraft fly, and to meet pilots and crewmembers that flew those machines during the war.
