From one of our flyovers, the Palm Springs Air Museum T-28B Trojan in the air over the Coachella Valley. I was flying in the Air Museum C-47 “What’s Up Doc”.

Today, yet again, I faced off a P-51 Mustang and forced it into submission. At the Palm Springs Air Museum.

Reno Air Races Behind The Scenes

I was getting the Palm Springs Air Museum T-6 towed back to the race pits after doing a raffle ride for the Air Races. Shot a few photos as I was riding back on the tailgate of the truck. I think this is a pretty cool scene from the woman who is my wing walker to the couple by the jet and the other guys just there doing what they are doing. Reno Air Races 2021.


P-51 Mustangs Flying Back From Reno

Two weeks ago today, flying back from the Reno Air Races 2021 in the P-51 Mustang “Spam Can” with “Wee Willy II” alongside. They placed 3rd and 4th in the Unlimited Silver finals.

Two Thunderbirds One Inverted

The very cooperative United States Air Force Thunderbirds stopped exactly where I asked them to stop so I could get this photograph. At the Reno Air Races 2021.


The Thunderbirds Straight Up

The United States Air Force Thunderbirds last week at the Reno Air Races 2021. It is the Thunderbirds that caught my aviation imagination going back to the 1960’s. It is a thrill for me to see and photograph them.


And This Happened

And this happened… Getting ready to leave the Reno Air Races yesterday morning. Backseat of a P-51 Mustang.


Pretty Polly Passes Mustang

Reno Air Races 2021

Saturday morning I fly up to the Reno Air Races. I am on the team for the Palm Springs Air Museum. We are racing three airplanes, two P-51 Mustangs and a P-63 Kingcobra. We are also flying up our T-6 and a C-47. An entire Air Force! I will be flying up in another P-51 Mustang but if one of these guys could take me with them that would be great. I am all about being time efficient. Less travel time is good. Thanks in advance Thunderbirds if you could stop by and pick me up. Photograph from the 2019 Reno Air Races.


National Aviation Day

It is National Aviation Day as well as being National Photography Day. Both work for me! In the Palm Springs Air Museum T-33.
