Backyard Poolside

In my backyard poolside. I have had the opportunity to photograph many an amazing individual. My buddy Jessica Jacobsen.


The Weather Came In

This afternoon the weather came in and the weather went out. But all around us in Palm Springs there were thunderstorms, leaving behind flooding hours later.

Not A Cessna

So I was in my pool when I heard the sound of an approaching aircraft that obviously did not sound like a Cessna.

July 4 Weekend Flyovers

Flyovers for the July 4th weekend with the Palm Springs Air Museum. I went on one of them for the Independence Day celebration at Lake Arrowhead. On the return we flew over Big Bear Lake and Airport. For the other flyovers I ran the ground operations and shot some photos.

C-47 Among The Windmills

I really like this view. Coming into Palm Springs from the North, the Palm Springs Air Museum C-47. It takes a long lens shooting from our ramp at the Air Museum.


Swamp Fox Mustang

We had a really good looking visitor at the Palm Springs Air Museum today.


Dad Day

A fun feature shot this last Thursday at the Palm Springs Air Museum. Yes me in the red shirt in the beginning marshaling in the T-28. The guy on the right, Dad of Chloe, wearing my flight suit and helmet. Just click on the photo…


Growler And Me

Last week at the Palm Springs Air Museum. That is me in the red shirt marshaling in a U.S. Navy EA-18G Growler for a visit. That was fun.


Growler

Yesterday a “Top Gun” timely visitor at the Palm Springs Air Museum. A Navy EA-18G Growler. This is the electronic warfare version of the F/A-18F Super Hornet. I must say it was very cool marshaling it in, doing the start-up for departure, and marshaling it out.
