Fun With Purpose

Yes what I get to do is great fun! I am in one airplane, a T-28 Trojan shooting the video of this P-40 Warhawk. The purpose actually is to create “content”, the photographs, videos and features showing the excitement and fun of the Palm Springs Air Museum. “One of the best Air Museums in the World” – CNN. Thanks!

A Successful Gala

I am honored to write the feature and shoot the photographs..

Our 2018 Annual Gala was a huge success! Special guest, Motion Picture “Top Gun” Commander “Viper” Tom Skerritt punctuated the evening as we honored our Heroes among us.

Our World War II PBY Catalina “Harriet’s Chariot” was dramatically presented in lighting and staging allowing us to announce the beginning of it’s restoration to it’s status of being such a very historic aircraft and part of our Living History here at the Palm Springs Air Museum.

Blue Angels On The Flightline

The precision of the United States Navy Blue Angels even just coming back to the flightline is amazing! At the Naval Air Facility El Centro Airshow this past Saturday. With the Palm Springs Air Museum, we were very happy to have been part of it with our own aircraft too! Thanks!

Flight Of Three

Truly I had a pretty good spot to shoot from…

Inspired by the Blue Angels at NAF El Centro, we decided to do our own formation flying on the way back to the Palm Springs Air Museum. Over the Salton Sea.

The Other Four

The Palm Springs Air Museum took four aircraft to the NAF El Centro Airshow this past weekend. These are not them. Took me along too. Good thing I brought a camera (or two)!

The United States Navy Blue Angels! At their opening demonstration for their 2018 flying season. We were very honored to bring our own aircraft to the Naval Air Facility El Centro for this exciting Air Show! And just as excited to bring you a look at our experience in photos and video. Thanks!

Clear To Taxi!

I really do get to do some fun things with the Palm Springs Air Museum! Like fly in warbirds to airshows and then shoot photos and video!

Clear To Taxi! The Blue Angels head on out for their season opening flight demonstration yesterday at NAF El Centro. Truly an overwhelming and incredible display of powerful aircraft and piloting skill.

We travel to airshows with a fleet of our own incredible aircraft to share the Palm Springs Air Museum with those who have not visited with us here at what is “One of the best Air Museums in the World!”.

Watch here and on the Palm Springs Air Museum Facebook Page for more of our weekend at the NAF El Centro Airshow and the Blue Angels! Thanks!


RCAF CF-18 Arrival

This being the photographer and social media manager at the Palm Springs Air Museum is too much fun!

The 150th Canadian Anniversary Royal Canadian Air Force CF-18 Hornet arrived yesterday. This very special aircraft will be with us all day Saturday March 3rd for you to view along with the opportunity to meet it’s pilot, Major Erick O’Connor.

“This incredible Canada 150 CF-18 Hornet is a shining example of the teamwork and professionalism that is embodied by the men and women of the RCAF,” said Major-General Christian Drouin, Commander, 1 Canadian Air Division/Canadian NORAD Region, “and is just one of the many ways that the men and women of the RCAF are working to honour their rich heritage, and commemorating the 150th Anniversary of the Confederation of Canada.”

The CF-18 Hornet will be departing on Sunday March 4th at approximately 2:00pm.
