Taking to the skies over Palm Springs starting at 10am on Memorial Day (Monday, May 29th), the Flower Drop & Air Fair at the Palm Springs Air Museum is one of the most spectacular ways to spend the Memorial Day holiday. This year’s drop will also commemorate the 75th anniversary of the Doolittle Tokyo Raid, and the sister of 2nd Lt. Aden Jones, who was a bombardier in the raid, will accept the Congressional Gold Medal on her brother’s behalf. Jones passed away before the Government awarded the medals to the Doolittle Raid participants in 2015.
In addition to the drop of 3,000 red and white carnations, there are flight exhibitions, a live band, food trucks, and a beer garden, as well as attractions for kids, including Totally Twisted Balloons and Harpo the Clown. Planes participating in the flight exhibition include the P-51, P-63, T-28, the Bearcat, and PBJ Marine B-25 bomber, which will be dropping the carnations. Additionally, front and rear seat tickets may be purchased on the B-25.
We hope you have a chance to participate in this exceptional event, and remember those who gave their lives for our country in what is a unique and moving memorial. For more information on the Memorial Day Flower Drop, visit the Palm Springs Air Museum website.
