C-17 Globemaster & Fujifilm X-H1

Nothing says March Air Reserve Base as much as these giant C-17 Globemasters! Doing a fly by over the weekend for the for the 2018 March Field Air Show.

I was there with the Palm Springs Air Museum. You would have seen us flying the aircraft that was the “Globe Master” of it’s time, our C-47 “What’s Up Doc?”.

Great fun shooting with the latest Fujifilm X-H1 camera body with power grip/booster and the super telephoto Fujifilm 100-400mm lens. Thanks!


I Was Just Standing There

I was just standing there, taking this nice photograph of this little mountain when this airplane got right in my way! I have identified it as a C-17 Globemaster III departing March Air Reserve Base. Think I should complain?

Flyover Muscle Beach

If you were on stage at Muscle Beach or just nearby on Memorial Day, this is one of the memories you are carrying in your mind from 2015. One you will not forget soon! The only bodybuilding and fitness show to open with the United States Air Force flying a C-17 overhead at roof top level.  You saw it, you heard it and you could feel the excitement. Only at the real Muscle Beach shows! That is where you find me with my cameras for over a decade.

Air Force Flyover


USAF Flyover At Muscle Beach!

A giant United States Air Force C-17 Globemaster III does a flyover at Muscle Beach to open the big International Classic bodybuilding and fitness show for Memorial Day 2015. Really something to see and hear! And it only happens at the Memorial Day show at the real Muscle Beach/Venice! A big Thank You to Ken H. Goode Jr.​ and the great people at March Air Reserve Base for making this happen!


C-17 Globemaster Down The Street

A United States Air Force C-17 Globemaster leaving the Palm Springs Airport Tuesday. I was at the Palm Springs Air Museum on a top secret photo shoot so I caught a few photographs as it took off. It may have been one of the support aircraft with Air Force One which departed Monday. It is interesting to think that when Air Force One is here, it is parked within an easy walk from my house. If the street were wider, the President could taxi on by and pick me up!
