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.

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.

Proposal

A fun time Saturday at the Palm Springs Air Museum. We had a visitor who arranged an airplane flight for his girlfriend. And also secretly asked if he could propose marriage to her when she came back in. I got him up on the wing, and as she got out of the cockpit with her back to him, she turned around to find him on his knee with the ring. That was cool.


Comm Check

That is me in the red shirt doing a comm check in the Palm Springs Air Museum T-28a Trojan.
