National Military Appreciation Month

May is National Military Appreciation Month and May 19th was National Armed Forces Day. buzzbox premium cocktails joined with the Palm Springs Air Museum to honor the so very many by celebrating the famed Tuskegee Airmen of World War II. Watch and listen as Air Museum Volunteer and United States Air Force Veteran Al Crossley tells his story and takes a flight in the “Red Tail” P-51 Mustang “Bunny”.  Thanks!


Bunny Back Up Camera

I just thought this was fun. I had left the GoPro’s running yesterday after a flight. Back up camera, on the Palm Springs Air Museum P-51 Mustang “Bunny”.

 


Flying In To Hangar 24

Flying in to the Redlands Airport to taxi up to the Hangar 24 Brewery. In the Palm Springs Air Museum P-51 Mustang “Bunny”. Doing some promotional photographs with “Bunny” and Hangar 24 Beer in front of the brewery for our upcoming flight experiences at Redlands. Great Craft Beer and Warbird Flights!


It’s A Secret

I really enjoy bringing the Palm Springs Air Museum to so very many people around the globe and here more locally. CNN named it as one of the Best Air Museums In The World.  So please come visit and also just follow along!

And a secret, don’t tell anyone… I am having a lot of fun! This is me in the backseat of the Air Museum’s P-51 Mustang “Bunny” taking off from March Air Field on Sunday. Our Museum visitors get to fly too! It is Living History whether in the backseat of  “Bunny” or in our WWII Paratrooper C-47 “What’s Up Doc?”, watching our weekly flight demonstrations, sitting in the pilot’s seat for “Open Cockpit”, or touring inside our giant four engine B-17 “Flying Fortress”. It is a first hand experience, always exciting.  Thanks!

This video was shot on the new Fujifim X-H1 camera body and the Fujifilm XF18-135 lens. Even better, kept on me with a beast of a camera strap made for aviation by Vulture Equipment Works. That is what you don’t leave home without!


Flight Of Three

Truly I had a pretty good spot to shoot from…

Inspired by the Blue Angels at NAF El Centro, we decided to do our own formation flying on the way back to the Palm Springs Air Museum. Over the Salton Sea.


Love The Smiles

I truly enjoy seeing our flight guests coming back from their adventures flying in vintage warbirds. Brings a smile to my face as big as their smiles! Among my duties as photographer and social media manager at the Palm Springs Air Museum.


Mustang Ride

A little of the excitement of what it is like flying in the iconic World War II fighter airplane, the P-51 Mustang. This one is “Bunny” for the Palm Springs Air Museum. More great video with a GoPro.
