Palm Springs To Chino Via SNJ

After ten days at the Reno Championship Air Races, I had flown back in the Palm Springs Air Museum P-51 Mustang “Bunny” with pilot Tom Nightingale. Then we flew in his North American SNJ trainer from Palm Springs to Chino where my car was parked in his hangar. Then a drive home for me back to Palm Springs. What great fun!


Lots Of Photo Fun!

A weekend of photographing some fun flying out of the Palm Springs Air Museum. A Navy SNJ trainer with a likely very happy passenger on board. The SNJ was also known as the T-6 Texan. Over 25 years there were 15,495 made and ultimately flown by 34 countries. It also was used in combat in World War II and Korea.
