Number 1 !

I must say that I am very proud and honored to be a part of the Palm Springs Air Museum. Not only do I do their photography and video, I also manage their Social Media and special projects. Occasionally I have been known to polish an airplane too! It’s all fun! Thanks!

Thank You Mercury News Newspaper for selecting us as their top pick of the five California museums that “belong on your must-see list”!

That along with CNN selecting us as one of the top aviation museums in the Entire World (not just the USA!) is pretty great! Thanks! Check it out at https://goo.gl/Ddv1uD

Lesley Zerebny Memorial Softball Game

The Palm Springs Air Museum was honored to have opened the Lesley Zerebny Memorial Softball Game at sunset last night, Sunday at Big League Dreams Sports Park with a flyby of our World War II C-47 “What’s Up Doc”. I was there to photograph the moment.

The annual Police and Firefighters game was renamed to honor the two fallen Palm Springs Police Officers from last year, Lesley Zerebny and Jose Gilbert Vega, with the proceeds going to the Palm Springs Police Officer’s Memorial Fund. We are very Thankful to have been there to pay our respects.

A Boot In The Butt

A great fun video interview for the Palm Springs Air Museum….

“…put it in afterburner and it really gives you a boot in the butt!” We could go through the sound barrier any time we wanted to, and farmers would complain a little bit. We did it plenty!” – Al Dempsey

 


From The Cockpit

Yesterday morning in the Palm Springs Air Museum, World War II C-47 “What’s Up Doc?”. Headed out through Banning Pass over the wind farms headed to Brackett Field in La Verne. Great fun flying in this big bird that actually flew in the Berlin Airlift. “Like” the Air Museum Facebook page┬áto watch for when you can fly with us too! Thanks!

 


Squirt VIII

When I get to do these interviews about people and these aircraft, it is a great discovery experience for me too!

Learn about the Palm Springs Air Museum P-47 Thunderbolt “Squirt VIII” with European Hangar Chief Tony Aidukas and then come in tomorrow Saturday, October 7th, and sit in the pilot’s seat yourself! Now that is a great thing to do for a selfie! We have “Open Cockpit” with different aircraft on Saturdays from 10:30 – 12:30. Great Fun! Thanks!
