So you have those kids in town for Saturday, the day before Christmas. Those kids from about 3 years old to about 103 years old, like me! The weather is rain and wind, so where do you go for a great time indoors? The Palm Springs Air Museum! Two huge hangars filled with beautifully restored aircraft and surrounded by endless displays of memorabilia and history. Flight simulators and even tours inside a huge World War II B-17, four engine bomber. From 10:30 – 12:30 you can even find yourself sitting in the cockpit of an F7F Tigercat. Too much fun which is why I am always shooting photos there! Ho Ho Ho!
There are only ten of the Boeing B-17 Flying Fortress still flying and here is one of them. The B-17 flew daylight bombing missions over Europe in World War II. It was made famous in many movies but most recently in “Memphis Belle”.
Yesterday at the Palm Springs Air Museum. Also flying was the only fully restored B-24 Liberator bomber and the world’s only dual control P-51 Mustang fighter. Both from World War II, now owned and operated by the Collings Foundation.
This is just a preview, I will be posting more photographs and videos in the next few days.
