Privateer

Yes I photographed the world’s only PB4Y-2 Privateer. And will be inside it too, coming up. And you can too at the Palm Springs Air Museum with me.

Lots of excitement on Monday, Memorial Day! Tour the inside of the only flying PB4Y-2 Privateer in the World!
The US Navy version of the B-24 designed as a long range patrol bomber in World War II. Later serving in the Korean War and then as a typhoon/hurricane hunter. So come on out Monday morning until 12:00 noon and share a true part of history.
Also on Monday, Memorial Day, flight demonstrations with our P-51 Mustang “Bunny”, P-63 Kingcobra, T-28 Trojan, C-47 “What’s Up Doc?”, T-6 flyovers, and the B-25 bomber “Pacific Princess”. Afternoon Missing Man Formation too with “Pacific Princess” dropping thousands and thousands of flowers right on our ramp.
Meet Tuskegee Airmen Lt. Col. Bob Friend and Captain Rusty Burns; WWII B-17 top turret gunner, 102 year old Mike Kovich, and 106 year old Kamikaze Survivor US Navy Veteran Marvin Cohn.
