  •  Balboa Park in Van Nuys (3+ / 0-)

    When I lived full time in L.A., my daily cycling route was the bike path around Balboa Park, and it had a great big, very popular model plane area that was one of the highlights of my ride. There were always hordes of planes of every type flying, my favorites were always the custom builts - especially the massive WWII bomber replicas, and the stealth fighters and bombers. I can still remember how flabbergasted I was when I saw the first actual jet powered model - I had no idea they could make them that small! And some crazed genius built what had to be a 15 foot mini-Hindenburg - it was quite majestic to see gliding around the park.
