|Friday evening was another highlight of our time in the California Desert. The event took place at the Palm Springs Air Museum.|
|This was the view when we walked in the hanger. Certainly different than yesterday.|
|Our table was at the tail of the plane where that red chair is.|
|Never having been to an "event" like this before, we didn't know what to expect. But Joan and her husband, from Minnesota, who were also seated at our table, made us feel very comfortable.|
Servers were constantly coming around offering us various hors d'oeuvres including mini lobster rolls, goat cheese on a little cracker and mini appetizers on a skewer.
|Restored "Bunny Fly's Home to Palm Springs Air Museum This link explains why we were back to the Air Museum Saturday morning. The rain held off until the ceremonies were over.|
"Bunny" was a girlfriend of LtC Bob Friends during the war.
|It was awesome to see these fly over. They made three passes and landed after the fourth.|
|After landing, the P51 Mustang was brought back into the hanger|
|There was a time of questions and answers about the Tuskegee Airmen. Saturday's guests of honor included Bob Friend, Rusty Burns, Robert Ashby and Levi Thornhill|
|This is just a portion of the crowd that attended this very special occasion.|
