Man O’War Visit And New Home

The P-51 Mustang Man O’War in 2016 visiting the Palm Springs Air Museum. Now it makes it’s home here at the Museum for flights. And we raced it last year at the Reno Air Races.


Porsche Event From The Air

A Porsche event at Atlantic Aviation at the Palm Springs Airport a few years ago. It was later hidden from the street side with stacked containers arranged around stadium seating. I was flying in the Palm Springs Air Museum T-28b Trojan coming in for a landing.


Professional

Being a professional photographer requires experience and technical expertise.

Questions

Visitors ask me a lot of questions at the Palm Springs Air Museum. This past weekend the most asked was “what is the biggest airplane that comes in to the Palm Springs Airport?”. For simplicity I just answer Air Force One. People were very surprised.


Norway To Palm Springs

There is a good story behind this video. A couple of years ago Rune Optun from Norway came and flew with us at the Palm Springs Air Museum. Rune is a true aviation enthusiast as are many of us. Rune and I have remained friends across Facebook. And this weekend he came back to the Air Museum and flew in our P-51 Mustang “Bunny” and our T-28B Trojan.

This is Rune going out in the T-28. So I have to give a big plus for Facebook for giving us the opportunity to maintain friendships across the world and across time. And for our mutual love of aviation.


T-34 Mentor Fly-In

The annual T-34 “Mentor” Fly-In just this past weekend. Sponsored by the Air Force Association Palm Springs and the Palm Springs Air Museum.Developed as a replacement for the training aircraft of World War II, the T-34 Mentor still remains in service today as the T-34C Turbo Mentor. Many of the original T-34’s are privately owned.

The “Movie Memphis Belle”

Now at home at the Palm Springs Air Museum. It flew in about a month ago.The actual B-17 “Flying Fortress” from the 1990 motion picture “Memphis Belle”. Look for it flying in later 2022.


Fountain Of Life

The Fountain Of Life at the Civic Center in Cathedral City CA

Last night…. The Fountain at the Cathedral City Civic Center. Designed and built by two good friends of ours…
“The Fountain of Life was designed by artist Jennifer Johnson in coordination with architect Reuel Young, A.I.A. It was built by House of Stone and Fountains and Landscape Enhancements. Artisans whose families have sculpted stone for more than 600 years carved the fountain pieces out of adoquin stone from a quarry near Guadalajara, Jalisco, Mexico. Once the individual pieces arrived in the desert, Johnson spent more than a year adorning the fountain with hand cut mosaic tiles and glass.”

And This Happened

And this happened… Getting ready to leave the Reno Air Races yesterday morning. Backseat of a P-51 Mustang.


Reno Air Races 2021

Saturday morning I fly up to the Reno Air Races. I am on the team for the Palm Springs Air Museum. We are racing three airplanes, two P-51 Mustangs and a P-63 Kingcobra. We are also flying up our T-6 and a C-47. An entire Air Force! I will be flying up in another P-51 Mustang but if one of these guys could take me with them that would be great. I am all about being time efficient. Less travel time is good. Thanks in advance Thunderbirds if you could stop by and pick me up. Photograph from the 2019 Reno Air Races.
