NAF El Centro Not This Year

Last year headed to the airshow at NAF El Centro with the Palm Springs Air Museum. I was flying alongside in either a T-28 Trojan or P-51 Mustang, I don’t recall which. I have flown in this C-47 hundreds of times. Anyway the airshow this year of course was cancelled. Sheltering at home.


Buckling In Marilyn

Last night we taxi’d in with VIP’s for a corporate event at the Palm Springs Air Museum in the C-47. We even had Marilyn Monroe on board! I got to buckle her in too. We do a lot of corporate events.

On The Way Back

On the way back from a very fun Kingman AirFest┬áSaturday in a World War II C-47. I had never stopped moving since 7am this morning. And this actually wasn’t a down time either; I was texting the Palm Springs Air Museum crew about our updated arrival time.
