My best to all of you in the New Year 2020! With a Happy New Year from the Palm Springs Air Museum with my photo of our P-51 Mustang.
What can we bring to your airshow? We can also do something special for your corporate events? Warbird rides for your top execs or best clients perhaps? Send me a note or give me a call and we can talk.

Just returned from the International Council of Air Shows (ICAS) convention in Las Vegas. There as Aviation Coordinator for the Palm Springs Air Museum. A big Thank You to Greg Hiser, Air Capital Insurance (ACI), insurer of the Palm Springs Air Museum. A random drawing by ACI, and won by me, paid for a great dinner for myself and our two other Museum attendees. So a toast to Greg Hiser and ACI!
Quick trip the other day to Mojave. Made even quicker in the Palm Springs Air Museum T-28 Trojan.
Please join us at the Palm Springs Air Museum for an exciting Workprint Test Screening of the World War II docudrama, JOURNEY TO ROYAL followed by a Q&A with the filmmakers, on Saturday, October 19, 2019 from 1:00pm to 3:30pm.
The film tells the extraordinary true story of Lt. Royal Stratton and the 4th Emergency Rescue Squadron who, over the seas on an embattled South Pacific, flew over 800 rescue missions to save the lives of 576 men.
Over the last decade, the filmmakers have traveled the world locating and interviewing the surviving members of the Squadron, as well as other WWII veterans, who share their firsthand accounts of some of the most pivotal and consequential events of that War. Their goal is to preserve the values of, and celebrate the contributions made by, the Greatest Generation.
Another installment from only a week ago with the crew of the Palm Springs Air Museum at the Reno Air Races. This is really special… the aircraft is the World War II P-63 Kingcobra “Pretty Polly”. There are perhaps four Kingcobras still flying. No passengers are allowed in aircraft during racing but this is a single seat aircraft anyway. I do get to fly and photograph from many other aircraft.
So this was a place for GoPro. Mounted to the side of the pilot’s flight helmet, you get a perspective of his line of sight from instruments to outside flying past the pylons. It really is just like being there. Turn up your sound too!
