Airshow at the Dawn of the Jet Age

These two snapshots, which came from a large bin of photos at a Long Beach CA antiques shop, catch a moment in time at an airshow (location unknown - comment if you recognize it!) from the late 1940s or early 1950s. The P-80A-1 Shooting Star shown, 44-85284, was one of the first 344 Block 1 production aircraft, and was later upgraded to a F-80C with an improved engine and an ejection seat.
