17 T-34’s

We had 17 T-34 military trainers at the Palm Springs Air Museum yesterday. So much fun having them start up and taxi in and out. Flying formations right down over the runway. You can still see them flying this morning at about 10 AM. And many of them will be around all day. Be there!

 

 


T-34 Fly In

Eight T-34’s flew in yesterday¬†and there will be more this morning, as many as sixteen total. A weekend fly in at the Palm Springs Air Museum. You can come out and see formation flying at around 10 AM and also around 2 PM following the 1 PM history program ¬†about Germany’s first Ace fighter pilot of World War I and considered the father of air combat, Oswald Boelcke. There will also be some flying on Sunday!

The T-34 was the trainer for the United States Air Force, Navy and Marine Corp. They flew at Edwards Air Force Base, for NASA, and even for Argentina during the Falklands War. And the planes you will see here at the Air Museum are incredibly restored great looking airplanes. Be there! I will!
