4th of July! I have to try this jumping out of an airplane soon.
The other day in a T-28 Trojan taking off out of the Palm Springs Air Museum and landing at the Chino Airport. The Air Museum pilot extraordinaire Michael Nightingale. This truly is a great aircraft, very powerful with an over 1,400hp engine and you don’t realize how huge it is until you are right up next to it. The Air Museum P-51 Mustang “Bunny” and the T-28 will be doing flyovers on July 4th, first both over Big Bear Lake at 5:30pm and then the P-51 for the Fourth of July Celebration and Concert at the Starlight Bowl in Burbank at 6:30pm. So if you are out boating or enjoying the music, keep an eye out! Very Fun being the Palm Springs Air Museum photographer! Thanks!
Works for July 4th too! We have Red, White and Blue! As usual I am at Muscle Beach photographing the July 4th bodybuilding and fitness show. But this was a truly special event with the Tuskegee Airmen honored on Memorial Day 2012 at Muscle Beach. From left to right, Tuskegee Airmen… Levi Thornhill, Buford Johnson, Edward Tillman, and Ted Lumplin.
Brig. Gen. Roger W. Teague, Vice Commander, Space and Missile Systems Center, Los Angeles Air Force Base came to Muscle Beach to also be a part of this extraordinary day.
And giving everyone a reason to smile, Heather Clay, the overall Bikini Competition winner that day. She also gets my vote for absolute best salute of the day!
