The B-17 From 1935

Yes I get to shoot fun video like this and fly onboard. Watch the video! I really enjoy being the Social Media Manager for the Palm Springs Air Museum and it gives me the opportunity to share some amazing history. The Palm Springs Air Museum, One Of The Best Air Museums In The World – CNN.

July 28, 1935 eighty three years ago, the B-17 Flying Fortress took it’s first flight. The giant four engine bomber that played a pivotal role in World War II and became an iconic symbol of American Air Power.

You can tour the inside the B-17 Flying Fortress “Miss Angela” at the Palm Springs Air Museum. See what it was like to fly a mission from the cockpit, across the bomb bay, to the guns in the back. In one of ¬†four fully air conditioned hangars of almost 100,000 sq ft of aircraft and displays. Great fun and history!


Flying High!

So very fun! Video from my flight on this B-17 Flying Fortress this last Monday. Did you know I am also the photographer for the Palm Springs Air Museum and also now do their social media! How cool is that! And you thought I only photographed guys with muscles in the gym and beautiful women.
