Quick stop on the way back from Chino. Worth the morning for sure.

James,  these are great shots, but that one ugly Viper.  It looks like the Palm Springs Elementry School 1st Grade did the paint job.  Wow :-)

I wonder what's going to happen to that place in the future. Bob Pond's heirs are selling off his collection, aircraft by aircraft, and those were the majority of the collection. It's possible there is some agreement in place for the new owners to keep them there, but I don't know.

I sure hope so.  I've always wanted to stop there and never did.  I will have to make the trip in the new year if the collection remains there.

All the aircraft out front are in pretty bad shape but the Viper is butt ugly. Almost like they used a latex paint but didn't get the surface clean beforehand.

The collection is simply incredible and definitely worth the time to visit.

Well, my Navy EA-6B photography has come full circle. My first photo of a Navy EA-6B was of a VAQ-134 bird at Red Flag back in 2009, and now with what is most likely my last Navy EA-6B photograph it is also of a VAQ-134 bird. This one is actually extra special, this aircraft has my friend's name painted on the canopy rail.
