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.

Guardians USMC

So this time I wrestled a King Air from USMC Guardians HQ&HQ Squadron – Yuma into submission. At the Palm Springs Air Museum for a visit.


Running The New Stearman Engine

The Stearman at the Palm Springs Air Museum got a new engine. This was it’s first 30 minute run the other day. This airplane had belonged to Barron Hilton, son of Conrad Hilton the creator of Hilton Hotels. He was a very accomplished pilot and supporter of the world of aviation. We have always wondered if his granddaughter Paris Hilton ever flew in this airplane with him.
