Very much enjoy getting to discover and research these moments in history. As Social Media Manager for the Palm Springs Air Museum.
July 2, 1926 the Air Corps Act became law creating the United States Army Air Corps. A history which went on to become the United States Army Air Forces on June 20, 1941. Today as we know, it is now the United States Air Force created in 1947. A proud heritage of aviation and service from 92 years ago today.
Thank You to Palm Springs Air Museum friend Brooks Wachtel, Emmy Award Winner and Co-Creator of the History Channel series “DogFights” for this moment in history.
“Wings Over America” poster from 1939.
Mick Dawson talking about the Spitfire. Mick was a young man in England working at an airbase during World War II. One of the very very interesting people I get to meet shooting photographs and video and managing the social media for the Palm Springs Air Museum.
Climb in the cockpit of the Supermarine Spitfire yourself! This is an incredible opportunity! The British fighter aircraft that is a hero of the Battle of Dunkirk and the exciting motion picture “Dunkirk”!
Open Cockpit Saturday June 30th from 10:30am – 12:30pm at the Palm Springs Air Museum. Check it out!

My work in bodybuilding and fitness as a photographer has allowed me to meet some great people. Like my friend Mr. John Hansen who has the title as the very first Mr. Natural Olympia.
Here in a segment of video we did at Palm Springs Fitness Center. Treadmill and StairMaster, how and why from a guy who really knows his stuff.

I really enjoy the purpose when my videos and photos get to share both excitement and history. Here with the Palm Springs Air Museum.
The Berlin Airlift 70 years ago started on June 24, 1948. From our Palm Springs Air Museum friend, Brooks Wachtel, Emmy Award Winner and Co-Creator of the epic History Channel series “DogFights”. More below…
“The Soviet Union began the Berlin Blockade. It was an attempt to gain control over the allied sections of the city by preventing food from reaching the inhabitants.
The allies answered with the largest airlift in history, flying in supplies on the gamble that the Soviets would not launch an overt and provocative attack on these aircraft.
By April, 1949, they were flying in more supplies than had previously been delivered by rail. In May the humiliated Soviets gave up and opened the land routes.”
In total, the USAF delivered 1,783,573 tons and the RAF 541,937 tons, nearly two-thirds of which was coal, on 278,228 flights to Berlin. The Royal Australian Air Force delivered 7,968 tons of freight and 6,964 passengers during 2,062 sorties. The C-47s and C-54s together flew over 92 million miles in the process, almost the distance from Earth to the Sun. At the height of the Airlift, one plane reached West Berlin every thirty seconds. Pilots came from the United States, United Kingdom, Australia, Canada, New Zealand, and South Africa.
The C-47 “What’s Up Doc?” is a veteran of the Berlin Airlift. And right now in the air-conditioned hangars of the Palm Springs Air Museum where you can watch “Doc” undergoing it’s routine annual inpsection. That is something you will not see everyday. Check it out!

It was Friday and Saturday night for me at the Palm Springs Air Museum. This was fun!
Thousands of people got a whole different look at the C-47 “What’s Up Doc?” for Splash House. People who had never seen incredible military aircraft like ours before got a look at many of them. The typical reaction… Wow this is great, we have to come back!
Splash House is a multi-venue music festival hosted poolside at hotel resorts in Palm Springs and right here at the Palm Springs Air Museum for their huge night time after-party. A great way to introduce people to the fun of Palm Springs and to the Air Museum. Thanks!
