A great fun video interview for the Palm Springs Air Museum….
“…put it in afterburner and it really gives you a boot in the butt!” We could go through the sound barrier any time we wanted to, and farmers would complain a little bit. We did it plenty!” – Al Dempsey
Yesterday, Friday, a day unlike any other! Because an airplane arrived that you really do not get to see, let alone see it fly. It is a MiG Flug L29, a Soviet era jet trainer that will be very spectacular to see fly today, Saturday, right after the 1:00 PM program. And the program is not to be missed…
The guys who flew the missions in the F-100 Super Sabre, the supersonic jet fighter aircraft that served with the United States Air Force from 1954 to 1971. Pilots Al Dempsey and Bob Lilac at 1:00 PM today. These men made history and have the tales to tell! Be there!
