Lots Of Flying

Plenty of excitement at the Palm Springs Air Museum on Saturday. A flight demonstration with the Museum’s 1944 World War II C-47 Skytrain cargo plane. Along with people doing Biplane rides in this U.S. Army Stearman. The C-47 did passes about as low as possible without having to lower the landing gear and driving down the runway. You could get a ride in the C-47 too! What great fun and a living history lesson everyday!

Some Navy Training

Not only yesterday but pretty much everyday you can go take a ride in this PT-17 Stearman Navy trainer at the Palm Springs Air Museum. There were over 10,000 built in the 1930’s and 1940’s. If you learned how to fly in the military this was your classroom.

Rule #1 in my photo shoots is have fun. Rule #2 in my photo shoots is see Rule #1. And having fun with Sharon Lim at the Palm Springs Air Museum was what we did. Looking outstanding in that fit body hugging dress with our airplane du jour, a 1946 Boeing Stearman is just too perfect! Big Thanks to Natalie Lyle for our outstanding Makeup and Hair Styling.
