Those who enjoyed last fall's Victor Valley Airshow at the Hesperia Airport may want to check out the Cable Airshow from 8 a.m. to 4 p.m. on Jan. 12-13 at Cable Airport in Upland.

Regarded as the country's first airshow of the year, the Cable Airshow will feature aerobatic pilot Rob Harrison, who has starred at the Hesperia events. An engineer and lawyer when he's not piloting his yellow 325-horsepower Zlin 50LX single-propeller airplane, the "Tumbling Bear" has flown in more than 300 airshows.

Others to star in next weekend's show include the Just In Time Skydivers, the Latin Skydivers and the Freedom Parachute Team, which will jump out of airplanes and freefall at speeds of 120 miles per hour.

Other pilots include Dr. Frank Donnelly who will perform old time aerobatics in his Taylorcraft, Doug Jardin in his Sukhoi 26 and Jon Melby in his Pitts.

The public will have the opportunity to meet the performers after the aerobatic shows. Free autograph cards, bookmarks and photos will be available.

Formerly known as the Pomona Valley Air Fair, the 33rd annual Cable Air Show is organized and presented by the Pomona Valley Pilots Association and the Experimental Aircraft Association, Chapter 448. Proceeds go to non-profit aviation scholarships.

Admission is $7 for adults. Children 5-12 are $5 and under five are free. Parking is free.
