was my second year shooting the Gathering of Mentors at the Palm
Springs Air Museum. This year, I flew down with Marc Russell and was
there for the whole event. The winds were not cooperative this year and
turbulence decreased the amount of flying, but there were still
flights. There were 16 T-34s that showed up this year from California
and Arizona. I had a great time seeing some of the folks from last year
and meeting some new folks as well. Thanks to all of the pilots
involved for a safe and fun event. A big thanks goes out to Cannon
Aviation Insurance for the sponsorship and the army of volunteers at
the Palm Springs Air Museum for the hard work and hospitality. I also
want to thank Paula Alldredge for her tireless efforts getting food for
our happy hours and keeping us hydrated throughout the weekend.
