So sad to see them go but glad they will still have a new life in Africa! You can still always celebrate early days of aviation in our 1929 Travel Air open-cockpit biplane however . . . .

Well, last weekend was a real June Gloomer - we waited for a burn off to be able to take our passengers up for the gorgeous North County views but to no avail. Meanwhile 'Biggles' (Chief Pilot Brian Shepherd) sent in a pic of the McClellan-Palomar Airport runway to Fox 5 News and the fabulous Victoria Johnson used it on the her Weather Report! #VictoriaJohnson Brian Shepherd McClellan–Palomar Airport #FunFlights #JuneGloom #SanDiego Victoria Johnson #Fox5Weather

Fun Flights shared a memory — with Brian Shepherd and Janene Possell Shepherd.

Wow, three years have passed in a flash of fun. In the midst of June Gloom yesterday, passengers from Ohio took off into gloomy skies just excited about flying in Fun Flights 1929 Travel Air Biplane and then the sun broke through the gloom and clouds dissipated quickly into a blue sky, sooooo amazing, kinda magical. Seriously cool for sure!

We had the honor today of flying a WWII Mosquito pilot who learned to fly in 1942 at War Eagle Field in Lancaster, Ca. along with 300 other Royal Air Force Pilots who came to train here as England was being bombed daily. Granville now lives in San Diego County and brought a signed print of Lancasters (yes, he flew them also!) to donate to the growing Fun Flights office 'Wall of Heroes'. He loved his flight today in 'Olive' the Fun Flights 1929 Travel Air biplane with Biggles flying. A special day!
THANK YOU GRANVILLE AND THANK YOU TO ALL SERVICE MEN AND WOMEN! #NEVERFORGET with Brian Shepherd

We shared our 1929 Travel Air in a photo session for a engagement celebration - also in the photo was a 1929 Ford Durant (from Haynes Chauffeuring in San Diego). We all thought it couldn't be more beautiful with these two 1929 vintage flying and driving machines . . . until the bride showed up that is!

What an amazing flying day we had yesterday - the sun was out in a bluest of skies, the Carlsbad Flower Fields were awash with open flowers and one flight's passengers got to see a whale with her baby - they must have dawdling along the California coast way behind the other whales. Biggest flying day so far, brilliant with so many wonderful passengers and their families. Biggles snapped this pic after he returned from the Sunset Flight as it appeared that 'Olive' our 1929 Travel Air also really enjoyed giving hour flights all day long!!!
