PALM SPRINGS AIR MUSEUM, CA

November 4 – I had read a blurb in the paper that the Palm Springs Air Museum was featuring Planes of World War II for a limited period. That was our destination today.

WWII Planes of the European Theater:

Ken with "Pretty Polly"


The powerful B-24 Liberator – the plane that dropped the Atomic Bomb, essentially ending World War II.

An ejection seat. Years ago, a highschool friend had to eject from his jet when it was on fire. He did receive burn injuries; however, the ejection seat like this one saved his life.

WWII Planes of the Pacific Theater

A real educational experience for both of us!!

When we are down there, Joe enjoys it so much that we buy a membership. It saves us money :)
