BMW & B-17 I Have Flown In Both!

A BMW from the BMW Performance Center and the World War II B-17 Flying Fortress “Sentimental Journey” at the Palm Springs Air Museum. I have flown in the B-17 and driven the BMW on the Performance Center race track!

They were both here at the Palm Springs Air Museum during the LuLu’s Catering, Events and Restaurant season opening reception to benefit the Boy’s & Girl’s Club of Palm Springs. It was truly a tremendous event!

B-17 Flying Fortress Flying!

Pretty cool! I was shooting a World War II B-17 Flying Fortress from a Red Tail P-51 Mustang for the Palm Springs Air Museum. It was the famed Tuskegee Airmen in those Red Tails that escorted the B-17 bombers into Germany on some of the most dangerous missions of the war.

The first sections of the video shot on a Fujfilm X-H1 Body with the Fujifilm XF 100-400mm lens. The wider view was from a GoPro Hero 6 Black.

Come on out yourself. Fun photo ops too.. B-17 Flying Fortress at the Palm Springs Air Museum! Saturday and Sunday Oct 13 & 14 from 10am – 1pm for flights and interior tours in the afternoon.
