Inside Outside

I was on the inside shooting from the outside while I was shooting from the inside. Santa’s visit, flying around the Palm Springs area for the Palm Springs Air Museum. This World War II D-Day C-47 is actually a veteran of the Berlin Airlift 1948 – 1949.


How I Video Santa

Told ya’ I was out for the day shooting Santa flying his C-47! More over this coming weekend too, Santa will be flying at the Palm Springs Air Museum!

 


Flying Santa

Santa arrived at the Palm Springs Air Museum in true aviator style. He even arranged for snow for all the kids (and maybe some grownups too). He will be flying back in today, Sunday, at 11:00 AM sharp so get on out there. You can even sit on Santa’s lap and tell him what you want for Christmas. And no age restriction! Be there!

Operation Santa Claus

Yesterday Santa arrived at the Palm Springs Air Museum and even brought Mrs. Claus along to meet all the kids. Actually “Operation Santa Claus” started during the Berlin Airlift in 1948. The Soviet Union had blocked access to Western Sectors of Berlin cutting off food and supplies to the population. The Western Allies began an airlift of supplies with over 200,000 flights in just one year alone.

Then on December 20, 1948 “Operation Santa Claus” flew Christmas gifts to 10,000 Berlin children. The C-47 aircraft like this one was one of the primary aircraft used to bring supplies to the people of Berlin. The Palm Springs Air Museum is very proud to continue this tradition of bringing Santa Claus to the kids, traveling on an original C-47 aircraft.

Santa In His C-47

Around here Santa really knows how to travel! On his way to the Palm Springs Air Museum. Santa is there today and tomorrow if you want to take your kids there as an excuse to check out the great planes. The kids get goody bags and can play in the snow! You can get a burger in the cafe too!
