After ten days at the Reno Championship Air Races, I had flown back in the Palm Springs Air Museum P-51 Mustang “Bunny” with pilot Tom Nightingale. Then we flew in his North American SNJ trainer from Palm Springs to Chino where my car was parked in his hangar. Then a drive home for me back to Palm Springs. What great fun!

Flew back Monday in the Palm Springs Air Museum P-51 Mustang “Bunny” from the National Championship Air Races 2017 in Reno. I did 10 days as part of the crew racing “Bunny” and shooting photos and video. Worked hard long hours and every moment was incredible fun. I did keep my Facebook page and the Facebook page for the Air Museum current but neglected my own Blog here and my Instagram. So I will now being going back and posting some of the fun.
