B-17 Flying Fortress Flying!

Pretty cool! I was shooting a World War II B-17 Flying Fortress from a Red Tail P-51 Mustang for the Palm Springs Air Museum. It was the famed Tuskegee Airmen in those Red Tails that escorted the B-17 bombers into Germany on some of the most dangerous missions of the war.

The first sections of the video shot on a Fujfilm X-H1 Body with the Fujifilm XF 100-400mm lens. The wider view was from a GoPro Hero 6 Black.

Come on out yourself. Fun photo ops too.. B-17 Flying Fortress at the Palm Springs Air Museum! Saturday and Sunday Oct 13 & 14 from 10am – 1pm for flights and interior tours in the afternoon.

No To Bullies!

While doing a publicity and workout photo shoot with my good friend Kerstin Schulze, she had a message to share. She was bullied as a kid too.

Now she lives her life to carry a message and be a role model to so very many as an actress, a fitness personality and a Mom. Take a minute for her very spontaneous and heartfelt moment…

Flight Of Two

Yesterday shooting photos and video on board the Palm Springs Air Museum C-47 “What’s Up Doc?”. Fujifilm X-H1 camera.

August 19th is National Aviation Day in celebration of the development of aviation. We celebrated with a “Flight OF Two” on August 19th returning from the Wings Over Camarillo Air Show. Aircraft that were pivotal in the history of aviation. Flying in our own World War II C-47 “What’s Up Doc?” and across from us, the CAF Inland Empire C-53 “D-Day Doll”. Take a minute to watch and listen and enjoy some the experience of flying in these amazing 75 year old Warbirds.

The holiday was established in 1939 by President Franklin Delano Roosevelt with the Presidential Proclamation designating the anniversary of Orville Wright’s birthday to be National Aviation Day. Orville Wright, born in 1871, was still alive when the proclamation was first issued.


Gear Swing C-47

Fun video I get to do. At the Palm Springs Air Museum as the photographer and social media manager.

Routine annual maintenance and a gear swing on the C-47 “What’s Up Doc?”. Yes it works! Thanks!
