El Segundo straddles Los Angeles Airport and it the resting place for all the VTr's when they fly into town for the annual VT celebration in Manhattan Beach. This year is was also the site of a Saturday night VT dinner at the Proud Bird Restaurant.

Airplane Museum

The Proud Bird grounds holds an Airplane Museum with planes from the earliest bi-plane to the first plane that broke the sound barrier. Very interesting, worth a visit even if you don't eat at the restaurant. Check out the site below
