C-47 Wing Walking

Not actually, but the view from the wing, shooting with a GoPro. The World War II D-Day C-47 “What’s Up Doc?”. For the Palm Springs Air Museum.


My Rotating Beacon Hat Works!

Wearing that red rotating beacon on my hat always works to bring them right to my camera! Actually this is a really fun airplane to fly in and you can do that right after Christmas from Tuesday December 26th through that weekend.
 
The Palm Springs Air Museum World War II D-Day C-47 makes for a very historic ride too. This airplane actually flew during the Berlin Airlift. I have personally flown in it a number of times and each time it was just amazing. It is only $195 per person. Money very well spent for a “bucket list” opportunity. Call the Air Museum to make your reservation at 760-778-6262. You really will be happy you did! Thanks!

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!

Shooting video from the backseat of the Palm Springs Air Museum T-28 Trojan. Very Fun!

Radial Engine Concert

To many, the sound of radial engines is a concert! The other day at the Palm Springs Air Museum. Doing a run up on “What’s Up Doc?”, our World War II C-47. The props just came back from being balanced and re-installed. You just can’t get enough of those radial engines!
