Photograph from the ABC series “The Bachelorette”. Why do I have it here? Well just to the right of that airplane is me. Much of the episode was shot at the Palm Springs Air Museum. So it was my job to send the airplane out, have it taxi back on cue and marshal it back to the spot marked by the director. The spot marked with 3 inches of green masking tape. Not easy but we did it in one take! The pilot Patrick and I have worked together a lot so we know each other like this really well.
A lot more was shot at the Air Museum over a few days and the video scenes are pretty cool. So watch it if you get a chance. It aired this week and it is Season 18, Episode 3, Week 3. https://abc.com/shows/the-bachelorette/episode-guide/season-18/03-week-3
Me doing more of what I do at the Palm Springs Air Museum. Photograph by my good Air Museum friend Rob.
I do a lot of aircraft marshaling every week from warbirds to general aviation of all kinds. Luckily I have not had this kind of frustration very often. But I sure understand it lol
