Palm Desert Air Museum My best day

My passion has become history and this museum delivered.

I saw some of the famous planes from WW2 and 1 from Desert Storm. While the planes do interest me I can’t help but wonder what I would do in similar circumstances as their crews.

The highlight was the chance to see the inside of a B17 bomber. The US used this bomber in daylight raids over Europe.

The last plane I hoped to see was the amphibious PBY. There was one in the back awaiting restoration.
